White House Senior Adviser Jared Kushner has said that the Palestinians deserve “self-determination,” but stopped short of backing Palestinian statehood, expressing uncertainty over their ability to govern themselves.

Kushner, who is President Donald Trump‘s son-in-law, made the comments in a television interview with the Axios on HBO programs, broadcast on Sunday.

Asked whether he believed the Palestinians were capable of governing themselves without Israeli interference, Kushner said:

“That’s one that we’ll have to see. The hope is that they, over time, will become capable of governing”.

The Palestinians, he said, “need to have a fair judicial system … freedom of the press, freedom of expression, tolerance for all religions” before the Palestinian areas can become “investable”.

One of the architects of the United States‘s yet-to-be-released Middle East peace plan, Kushner said it would be a “high bar” when asked if the Palestinians could expect freedom from Israeli military and government interference.
