Senior Adviser to the United  States President, Jared Kushner, and U.S. Special Representative for International Negotiations, Avi Berkowitz, will not attend the gathering of world leaders at the Fifth World Holocaust Forum in Jerusalem on Thursday due to bad weather.

The two were supposed to arrive in Israel on Wednesday night straight from Davos, where they are taking part in the annual World Economic Forum alongside U.S. President Donald Trump.

But Kushner and Berkowitz, along with special envoy on Iran Brian Hook, could not make it on time to Zurich’s airport to catch the flight to Israel because of the inclement weather, and therefore a decision was made to return to the U.S. with Trump.

According to Israel Hayom report, yhe peace team is expected to make a visit to Israel in the near future, in order to discuss the administration’s peace plan ahead of its release.

Vice President Mike Pence is set to arrive in Israel on Thursday, and he will be a keynote speaker in the Holocaust forum.
