US President Donald Trump’s senior advisor Jared Kushner held a meeting Thursday with UK’s Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab, while British Prime Minister Boris Johnson made a “short drop-in” on the meeting, Downing Street confirmed to British media.

“We discussed the historic Israel-UAE deal and UK efforts to encourage Israeli-Palestinian dialogue,” Raab wrote on Twitter. “I reaffirmed UK commitment to a negotiated two state solution.”

Kushner paid a visit to London on his way back from a Middle East tour to persuade other Arab nations to normalize ties with Israel.

Last month, the UAE and Israel announced a US-brokered deal to normalize relations, including opening embassies.

Palestinian groups denounced the deal, saying it ignores the rights of Palestinians and does not serve the Palestinian cause.

After the deal was announced, Kushner visited Jordan on Aug. 26 and flew to Israel, the UAE, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia and Qatar.
