Washington [US], Mar 26 (ANI): US President Donald Trump is planning to postpone the release of much-anticipated Middle East Peace plan until Israel's election, reported The Hill.

However, the White House is yet to make an official announcement in this matter. When reporters asked Trump about the deal after his meeting with Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, he said, "We are talking right now. We are talking about this."If cleared by the white house, the decision is likely to increase Netanyahu's chance in getting re-elected as the Prime Minister, according to the Hill, he will not have to answer about the deal during his campaigning.

This development comes after Trump signed a decree to recognise Israeli sovereignty in the Golan Heights.

Middle East peace deal which addresses final issues of Isreal-Palestinian conflicts has been prepared by Trump's advisor and his son-in-law Jared KushnerLast Month, Kushner also indicated that the deal's release might be changed considering Israel election. (ANI)
