Kushner and Greenblatt's trip to Jerusalem followed a regional tour that included Jordan and Egypt - Israel's neighbors and peace partners - and Qatar, a Gulf state that has helped fund humanitarian aid to Gaza.
Kushner said the White House would soon unveil its own peace plan regardless of whether the 82-year-old Palestinian leader Abbas engages in the ongoing talks.
But Palestinians insist that the eastern part of Jerusalem will one day be the capital of their future state, a position supported by the worldwide community. He was referring to the U.S. "deal of the century" on how to forge peace in the Middle East.
"They are working and trying to work hard in a regime change, because Palestinian leadership under the leadership of President Abbas wants genuine, lasting, comprehensive peace, based on global law", Erekat added. "He has his talking points which have not changed in the last 25 years", he added.
Also on Saturday, Senior Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat repeated his claim that the US peace team aims to overthrow the Palestinian Authority.
"Washington is not an honest or acceptable mediator", the Ramallah-based ministry said in a statement, in response to Kushner's interview with Al-Quds.
That coincides with the language of the worldwide consensus and global law, which hold that East Jerusalem and the West Bank are Israeli-occupied territory. "There is a good deal to be done here from what I assess", Kushner said.
That evening, he will begin his history-making visit to the Jewish state and occupied West Bank during which he will meet both Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas.
Any plan also is likely to provide for indefinite Israeli control of airspace and a section of the Jordan River valley on the eastern border of Israel and the West Bank as a security measure.
While Kushner wouldn't reveal specifics of the peace deal proposal, he said the administration believes its economic plan for the region could "allow the governments to divert some of their funds from heavy investments in military and defense into better education, services and infrastructure for their people" if peaceful coexistence is achieved.
