Jared Kushner is founding a nonprofit focused on deepening Israel's relationships in the Middle East, Axios' Barak Ravid reported Wednesday.

The organization, named the Abraham Accords Institute for Peace, aim to deepen the new normalization agreements between Israel and other countries in the Middle East via trade and tourism.

During the presidency of his father-in-law, Donald Trump, Kushner played a major role in facilitating the Abraham Accords, which were hatched between August and December 2020.

It involved the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Sudan, and Morocco agreeing to recognize Israel's sovereignty. The UAE and Bahrain became the third and fourth Arab states to recognize Israel.

The organization is billed as nonpartisan and nonprofit, and is to be funded through private donations, Axios reported.

It plans to "provide analysis of the benefits of normalization and the potential benefits additional Arab countries can receive if they join the Abraham Accords," Axios reported, quoting a statement from the organization.
