Foreign minister Dominic Raab discussed the Middle East peace process on Thursday with Jared Kushner, US President Donald Trump's senior adviser, a British statement said.

"They welcomed the historic Israel-UAE normalisation deal, and discussed wider US efforts to facilitate the normalisation of ties between Israel and Arab States," a foreign office spokesman said.

“The Foreign Secretary (Raab) updated Mr Kushner on his recent visit to Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories, and his encouragement of a return to cooperation between the Israeli and Palestinian leaderships, as a first step on the road to a renewed Israeli-Palestinian peace process."

Prime Minister Boris Johnson also attended part of the meeting with the visiting Kushner.

"The Prime Minister and Foreign Secretary were clear about their commitment to a negotiated two-state solution,” the spokesman said.
