Senior White House advisor Jared Kushner revealed that the Trump administration will put forward its ‘deal of the century’ for peace in the Middle East after the end of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan in early June.

Kushner, who is also the son-in-law of President Donald Trump, assured that the proposal itself is “very detailed” and will represent a “comprehensive vision” for peace.

“Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had a great victory, and he’s in the middle of forming his coalition, and once that’s done we’ll probably be in the middle of Ramadan, so we’ll wait until after Ramadan and then we’ll put our plan out,” Kushner said.

“There will be tough compromises for both,” he added, when asked about whether it is a ‘two state’ solution.

“You can say two state, I realized that means different things to different people,” Kushner said. “So we said let’s just not say it, let’s just work on the details of what this means.”

Kushner also expressed hope that the economic components of the plan will be a starting point for progress, so that “we can break the cycle and get focused on betterment of life.”

“I think we developed a good business plan,” Kushner said.

The plan is expected to concentrate on Palestinian economic development instead of political aspirations, as one senior diplomatic source told CNN that a chance for Palestinians to get outside investment is more likely.

“This is going to be an economic-centered plan, with the political element left pretty open-ended — as in, the details and boundaries left to the parties to negotiate,” the source said.

A second source stated that if Palestinians reject the plan, Netanyahu “annex even more” land, likely in the West Bank.
