BRUSSELS (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump’s senior advisor Jared Kushner will meet with the European Union’s chief executive Jean-Claude Juncker on Tuesday afternoon in Brussels.

“They will discuss the Middle East situation and other geopolitical issues,” a spokeswoman for the European Commission told reporters at a daily briefing.

The meeting came at the request of the U.S. presidential administration, she added, saying the meeting will also be attended by the EU’s foreign affairs chief Federica Mogherini.
