Wesley Clark:”Kushner’s investment in Belgrade is betrayal of the US”

Jared Kushner’s real estate deal with the Serbian government is facing fresh controversy over what the retired US general Wesley Clark has called a “betrayal of the United States.”

In May, Affinity Partners, Kushner’s investment firm, announced it had signed a $500 million deal with the Serbian government to build a luxury hotel in Belgrade, the country’s capital.

The hotel is set to go up on the site of the former Defense Ministry, which was bombed in 1999, and the deal includes a pledge to build a “memorial dedicated to all the victims of NATO aggression.”

During the war, the U.S. joined forces with NATO to launch airstrikes against the Serbian government under President Slobodan Milosevic, who had unleashed a program of ethnic cleansing against Albanians in Kosovo.

Retired General Wesley Clark, who served as NATO’s supreme allied commander at the time, has criticized the planned memorial, telling SpyTalk, a Substack publication about national security and espionage, that it is “worse than a reversal” of U.S. policies.

Clark made the comments to Michael Isikoff, an American investigative journalist and author, who wrote in the publication that the memorial needed “to be viewed in a wider geopolitical context.”

“It serves the Kremlin’s core interests in undermining NATO at a time the alliance is engaged in resisting Russian aggression in Ukraine,” Isikoff wrote.

Clark said: “This is part of a broader Russian intelligence movement to split, discredit and weaken NATO. It’s Russian imperial pushback.”

He added: “Should Kushner participate in this? Of course, he should not.”
