White House Senior Adviser Jared Kushner urged a group of ambassadors on Wednesday to keep an “open mind” about the Trump administration peace plan for Israel and the PA, Reuters reported, citing a source familiar with the remarks.

According to the report, the peace plan will be unveiled after Netanyahu forms a coalition and after the Muslim month of Ramadan, which ends early June.

Kushner reportedly spoke to about 100 ambassadors from around the world at the Blair House located near the White House.

"We will all have to look for reasonable compromises that will make peace achievable," Kushner said, according to the source.

According to Reuters, the plan has two major components: a political part that addresses "core political issues" like the status of Jerusalem, and an economic part aimed at helping the PA strengthen its economy.

The Washington Post reported on Sunday that US President Donald Trump’s proposal for a “Deal of the Century” to resolve the Arab-Israeli conflict promises practical improvements in the lives of Palestinian Arabs but is likely to stop short of ensuring a separate, fully sovereign Palestinian state.

The plan is likely to focus heavily on Israeli security concerns, according to The Washington Post.
