Kushner: Mideast peace plan to be revealed in June after Ramadan


WASHINGTON — The Trump administration’s Middle East peace plan won’t be released before June, said Jared Kushner, the president’s son-in-law and senior adviser.

Kushner told a group of ambassadors that the plan will only be revealed after the conclusion of the Islamic month of Ramadan, which begins in early May and ends in early June.

The document outlining the U.S. plan is over 50-page long, Kushner added, saying it includes a political section and an economic section.

The Washington Post reported Sunday that the peace plan is likely to “stop short of ensuring a separate, fully sovereign Palestinians state.”

Arab officials told the publication that Kushner, who is spearheading efforts to formulate the plan, has focused on “economic opportunities for Palestinians” in a long-term agreement with Israel.

Under the deal, Israel would likely maintain its control over “autonomous” Palestinian territories, the report added.

While details of the blueprint remain unclear, it appears it would not include a two-state solution as a basis for negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians, the report suggested.
