If Israel waits for Palestinians on peace, we will wait forever

Senior White House adviser Jared Kushner and U.S. National Security Adviser Robert O’Brian hailed the normalization deal with the United Arab Emirates, and decried the Palestinian reticence to come to the negotiating table, in a visit to Israel Sunday for a series of meetings to discuss the agreement with Israeli leadership.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, after meeting with the Trump administration officials, told the media in a statement that “For far too long Palestinians had veto on peace between Israel and the Arab world. If we have to wait for them we will wait forever.”

Kushner said at the press conference that “When [the Palestinians] are ready to make peace, they now have the opportunity to do so.”
