The Trump administration's peace plan to resolve the Israel-Palestinian conflict has not been decided to include U.S. and international recognition of a Palestinian state with a capital in East Jerusalem despite a report in a London-based Saudi newspaper claiming so, a senior administration official told the Times of Israel on Wednesday.

"As we have not finished our plan, nobody knows what it is," the official side. "There is constant speculation and guessing about what we are working on and this report is more of the same."

The report in Asharq al-Awsat claimed the plan would allow the Old City of Jerusalem to fall under international protection and that large settlement blocs would remain where they are while smaller ones get transferred elsewhere. The outlet quoted knowledgeable Arab diplomatic sources in Paris who said the framework would be presented at an international conference held in one of the Arab cities.

The Palestinian Authority has rejected the plan as a conspiracy aimed at destroying the Palestinian cause and ousting its current leadership, according to the Times of Israel, and some Palestinian officials have called it "the slap of the century."

A White House spokesman said the peace plan is still unfinished.

"It is unfortunate that some parties are seeking to prejudice people against our unfinished plan, which these sources have not seen," said White House spokesman Josh Raffel. "Nobody should be basing their reaction, public or private, on these reports. In the meantime, we remain hard at work on the real draft plan that will benefit both sides."
