Jared Kushner, senior adviser to U.S. President Donald Trump, led a delegation from Israel to Morocco on Tuesday aboard the first direct flight between the two countries as part of the ongoing U.S. effort to broker peace deals between Arab countries and the Jewish state.

Leading the Israeli delegation on the same flight is Israeli National Security Adviser Meir Ben-Shabbat, whose family hails from Morocco.

While still in Israel, Kushner said that he hoped the visit would pave the way for “another warm peace” between Israel and Morocco, the AP reported.

Both Ben-Shabbat and Kushner are expected to meet with King Mohammed VI and other senior officials during their stay.

“The goal is to move the relationship from a low level to full diplomatic relations,” said Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman Lior Haiat.

“History is being written before our eyes,” said Ben-Shabbat, according to the report.
