Jared Kushner, Senior Advisor to the president of the United States, adressed the Saban Forum in a keynote conversation with Haim Saban, the chairman of The Saban Forum.

The Saban Forum is a US-Israeli dialogue, hosted by the Brookings Institution, a nonprofit public policy organization.

Kushner said the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is one that is "personal" to United States President Donald Trump and said the administration is avoiding setting a timeframe to increase the probability of achieving as much as possible. Kushner addresses The Saban Forum

He declined to comment on the potential move of the US Embassy to Jerusalem, saying that Trump was still making a decision and, when the decision has been made, Trump would want to tell the public himself.

Earlier, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed the forum via video, warning against the dangers of the Iranian regime.
