Jared Kushner has joined his wife Ivanka Trump in Japan for the G20 summit, as President Trump is preparing to meet Saudi crown prince Mohammad ibn Salman for the first time since the murder of Jamal Khashoggi.
Kushner was in Bahrain on Monday to pitch his plan to bring investments to the Palestinians, calling it the & # 39; chance of the century & # 39 ;.
Ivanka Trump accompanied her father on Air Force One. Shortly before the trip, the administration announced that it would hold a keynote speech at an event for women's emancipation.
It was not immediately clear what was on Kushner & # 39; s agenda when he was in Japan, but Trump & # 39; s practice was to involve his White House adviser in many critical meetings.

Kushner formed a friendship with the Saudi crown prince. The two men have often spoken by phone and text, with conversations dating shortly after Trump's election.
In March 2017, Kushner helped organize a formal lunch meeting between Trump and the crown prince, known as MBS, and the two men remained in contact.
The close American ties with Saudi Arabia, both during the Trump government and earlier, came to the attention after the murder of columnist Jamal Khashoggi in Washington Post, a critic of Saudi domination.
The CIA concluded that MBS ordered the murder, which was carried out by Saudi officials at the Saudi embassy in Istanbul, according to the Post.
Trump has expressed the desire to continue the incident and focus on other matters in the relationship, with an emphasis on Saudi purchases of US military equipment.

& # 39; I think it was heavily researched. … Through everyone, & # 39; Trump told NBC in a & # 39; Meet the Press & # 39; interview on Sunday.
& # 39; Saudi Arabia is a major buyer of [American] products. That means something to me. It is a major producer of jobs, Trump said. He said the murder & # 39; did not occur & # 39; during a telephone conversation this month.
The Saudi's blamed the killing of a fraudulent operation.
Ivanka Trump, who together with Kushner also traveled to Great Britain with her father at the beginning of June, will speak with Queen Maxima of the Netherlands about the event for women's emancipation, according to a source from the administration. The two were also together when Ivanka participated in a Global Entrepreneurship Summit in the Netherlands at the beginning of this month.
