The Trump administration officially stated that it will not release any part of its Mideast peace plan to help resolve issues associated with the Israeli-Palestinian conflict prior to Israel’s Sept. 17 national elections.

“We have decided that we will not be releasing the peace vision (or parts of it) prior to the Israeli election,” tweeted U.S. Mideast special envoy Jason Greenblatt on Wednesday.

U.S. President Donald Trump said last week that the second part of the White House’s long-awaited Mideast peace plan, dealing with the political components, will likely be released after the Israeli elections.

The first part of the peace deal was rolled out at a summit in Bahrain in June and focused on the economic component, consisting of a 40-page document detailing a $50 billion, 10-year investment plan for the Palestinian Authority, Jordan, Egypt and Lebanon.

The Palestinian Authority and others boycotted the event.
