Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reportedly told cabinet ministers Sunday that there’s currently no “concrete U.S. peace plan” on the table.

At a briefing of ministers about the prime minister’s meeting with President Donald Trump last Monday, Netanyahu delivered the stark news.

"There is no concrete U.S. peace plan on the table at the moment. I am not saying there couldn't be one in the future, but right now there is none,” Netanyahu said, two officials at the meeting told Axios.

The remarks were also reported by Israel’s Channel 10, according to the Times of Israel.

Speaking after he met last week with Trump, Netanyahu told reporters very little time was spent discussing a peace plan, the Times of Israel reported.

“The issue of the Palestinians came up in the terms I described — the security question,” Netanyahu said at the time, the Times of Israel reported. “Not more than quarter of the time [we discussed] the Palestinians.”

In the last few months Trump's "peace team," led by senior adviser Jared Kushner and special envoy Jason Greenblatt, has been working on a plan for re-launching peace talks.

The efforts, however, ran into problems after Trump announced recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, and that the embassy would be moved there from Tel Aviv, Axios reported, adding that since that time, the Palestinians refuse to engage in any contacts with Trump's advisers.
