Kushner: Trump ‘very fond of Abbas, likes him very much personally,’ peace plan to advan

“Our door is always open to the Palestinian leadership,” said senior adviser to President Trump, Jared Kushner.

White House adviser Jared Kushner said on Wednesday the United States is willing to engage with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, but hinted a new peace plan might call on Palestinian refugees to settle where they are and not return to lands now in Israel.

At a workshop in Bahrain last week, Kushner unveiled a $50 billion economic plan for the Palestinian territories, Jordan, Egypt and Lebanon. On Wednesday, he said he would have more to say about the way forward on the economic plan “probably next week.”

Sometime later this year, he is to outline a 50- to 60-page page plan that will offer proposals on resolving the thorny political issues between the Israelis and the Palestinians.

In a conference call with reporters, Kushner said US President Donald Trump is “very fond of President Abbas, he likes him very much personally” and is willing to engage with him at the right time.

“I have a lot of respect for President Abbas. I think that he devoted his life to trying to make peace,” declared Kushner.

“I do believe in his heart he wants to make peace, and my hope is that we’re going to be able to give him that opportunity to try and achieve that. Our door is always open to the Palestinian leadership,” Kushner said.

He said he believes Abbas wants peace but “certain people around him are very uncomfortable with the way we’ve approached this, and their natural reaction is to attack and say crazy things” that are not constructive.

But Kushner’s comments on Palestinian refugees are likely to raise concerns among Palestinians.

Whether the hundreds of thousands of refugees from the 1948 war of Israel‘s founding, which with their descendants now number around 5 million, will exercise a right of return has been among the thorniest issues in decades of difficult diplomacy.

Israel has long ruled out any such influx as destabilizing, arguing that refugees should stay where they are or in a future Palestinian state. But prospects of such a state arising in Judea and Samaria and the Gaza Strip are themselves in doubt.

Asked by a Lebanese reporter whether the United States hoped Arab countries hosting Palestinian refugees would accept them permanently in exchange for funding, Kushner declined to answer directly, saying the matter would be addressed later.

But he suggested a comparison between Jews displaced from Middle Eastern countries in 1948, many of whom Israel took in.

“Look, you have a situation when this whole thing started where you had 800,000 Jewish refugees that came out of all the different Middle Eastern countries and you had 800,000, roughly, Palestinian refugees,” he said .

“And what’s happened to the Israeli — to the Jewish — refugees, is they have been absorbed by different places whereas the Arab world has not absorbed a lot of these refugees over time,” he said.

“I think that the people of Lebanon would love to see a resolution to this issue, one that is fair,” he said.

“And I also think that the refugees, the Palestinian refugees who are in Lebanon, who are denied a lot of rights and who, you know, don’t have the best conditions right now would also like to see a situation where there is a pathway for them to have more rights and to live a better life.”

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has long suggested a demographic tradeoff between Jewish and Palestinian refugees.

Nikki Haley, the former US ambassador to the United Nations, said during a Jerusalem visit last week that Washington has its own figure for Palestinian refugees.

“The number of actual Palestinian refugees is classified,” she told a conference hosted by the Israel Hayom newspaper. “There are multiple people working to get it unclassified.”

“我们的大门始终向巴勒斯坦领导层开放,”特朗普总统的高级顾问Jared Kushner说。

白宫顾问贾里德库什纳周三表示,美国愿意与巴勒斯坦权力机构主席马哈茂德阿巴斯接触,但暗示新的和平计划可能会呼吁巴勒斯坦难民定居他们所在地,而不是现在返回以色列的土地。

在上周巴林的一个研讨会上,库什纳为巴勒斯坦领土,约旦,埃及和黎巴嫩公布了50​​0亿美元的经济计划。周三,他表示他可能会更多地谈论经济计划的前进方向“可能是下周”。

今年晚些时候,他将概述一份50至60页的页面计划,该计划将提出解决以色列人和巴勒斯坦人之间棘手的政治问题的建议。

库什纳在与记者的电话会议上表示,美国总统唐纳德特朗普“非常喜欢阿巴斯总统,他非常喜欢他”,并愿意在适当的时候与他交往。

“我非常尊重阿巴斯总统。我认为他毕生致力于实现和平,“库什纳宣称。

“我确实相信他的内心,他想要和平,我希望我们能够给他机会尝试实现这一目标。我们的大门始终向巴勒斯坦领导人开放,“库什纳说。

他说他相信阿巴斯想要和平但是“他周围的某些人对我们接近这个问题的方式感到非常不安,他们的自然反应就是攻击和说出疯狂的事情”,这些都不具有建设性。

但库什纳对巴勒斯坦难民的评论可能会引起巴勒斯坦人的担忧。

1948年以色列建国战争中成千上万的难民,他们的后代人数现在已达到500万左右,他们行使返回权利是否是几十年艰难外交中最棘手的问题之一。

以色列长期以来一直排除任何破坏稳定的涌入,认为难民应该留在原地或未来的巴勒斯坦国。但在犹太,撒玛利亚和加沙地带出现的这种国家的前景本身就存在疑问。

在一位黎巴嫩记者的询问下,美国希望收容巴勒斯坦难民的阿拉伯国家是否会永久接受这些国家以换取资金,库什纳拒绝直接回答,并表示此事将在稍后解决。

但他建议对1948年从中东国家流离失所的犹太人进行比较,其中许多人是以色列人。

他说:“看,你有这样一种情况,那就是你们有80万犹太难民从所有不同的中东国家出来,你们有80万,大致是巴勒斯坦难民。”

他说:“以色列人 – 犹太人 – 难民身上发生了什么事,他们被不同的地方吸收了,而阿拉伯世界并没有吸收很多这些难民。”

“我认为黎巴嫩人民希望看到解决这个问题,一个公平的解决方案,”他说。

“而且我也认为难民,在黎巴嫩的巴勒斯坦难民,被剥夺了很多权利,而且你知道,他们现在没有最好的条件,他们也希望看到有这样的情况。让他们拥有更多权利和过上更好生活的途径。“

以色列总理内塔尼亚胡长期以来建议在犹太人和巴勒斯坦难民之间进行人口权衡。

前美国驻联合国大使尼基·哈利上周在耶路撒冷访问期间表示,华盛顿有自己的巴勒斯坦难民身份。

她在以色列Hayom报纸举办的一次会议上说:“巴勒斯坦实际难民的数量是分类的。” “有很多人努力将其解密。”
