White House senior adviser Jared Kushner’s long-awaited Middle East peace plan is likely to debut this spring or summer and reportedly does not include sovereignty for Palestine.

According to a Sunday Washington Post report, officials familiar with the plan say it centers on economic opportunities for the Palestinians and a guarantee of Israeli control over disputed territory.

Representatives from both the Palestinian and Israeli governments say their leadership will at least look at the plan before making judgments, though the Palestinians maintain that President Donald Trump is biased against their interests.

Per the Post, hopes are not high for the plan among experts who have watched decades of similar US-led efforts fail miserably.
