Jared KushnerThe U.S. Middle East peace plan for Israeli-Palestinian talks is to be unveiled in early June, President Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner said this week.

Speaking to 100 foreign diplomats at Blair House, Kushner said that the U.S. plan will be presented after the new Israeli government is formed and following the end of Ramadan on 5th June.

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

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

Newly appointed Palestinian Authority (PA) Prime Minister, Mohammed Shtayyeh, said that the plan will be “born dead”. He said: “There are no partners in Palestine for Trump. There are no Arab partners for Trump and there are no European partners for Trump”.
