Netanyahu rival was asked about his meeting with assistant to Jared Kushner. ‘I can assume they will be careful’ about releasing plan, Gantz said.
A U.S. release of its Mideast peace plan before the Israeli election would constitute an intervention in its political process, Benny Gantz, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s chief rival, said on Wednesday.
Gantz, head of the Kahol Lavan party, was asked during a party meeting in Jerusalem about his meeting Tuesday with Avi Berkowitz, assistant to Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner.
“I am happy about these meetings and about the important ties with the U.S.,” Gantz replied, but added: “I can assume that on such an important matter the Americans would be careful and not publish it before the election, because that would be an outright intervention in the State of Israel’s election process.”
