WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The United States will not release the political portion of its Israeli-Palestinian peace plan before Israel’s elections, White House Middle East envoy Jason Greenblatt said on Wednesday.

“We have decided that we will not be releasing the peace vision (or parts of it) prior to the Israeli election,” Greenblatt said on Twitter. President Donald Trump on Monday said the plan might be revealed before the Israeli election.
