The Japan Times

WASHINGTON – White House senior adviser Jared Kushner, U.S. President Donald Trump's son-in-law, is visiting Iraq with marine Gen. Joseph Dunford, the chairman of the U.S. military's Joint Chiefs of Staff, a senior Trump administration official said Sunday. The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said Kushner wanted to see Iraq for himself and to show support for the country's government. The official was confirming a report by other media, including a tweet by a New York Times reporter. Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi met Trump for the first time on March 20 and said afterwards that he won assurances of greater U.S. support in fighting Islamic State militants but cautioned that military might alone would not be sufficient.
