UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump hopes to decide soon on when to release a plan for peace between Israel and the Palestinians, his Middle East envoy Jason Greenblatt told the United Nations Security Council on Tuesday.

"President Trump has not yet decided when we will release the political portion of the plan, and we hope to make that decision soon," he said.

Greenblatt also said that the conflict could not be solved on the basis of international consensus or with references to inconclusive international law and United Nations resolutions.
