White House adviser Jared Kushner's Mideast peace plan is reportedly coming out two months later than expected.

In an address Wednesday to about 100 global ambassadors at Blair House near the White House, President Donald Trump's son-in-law said the peace plan will be released after the Islamic month of Ramadan ends June 4, Reuters reported.

The information was confirmed in a tweet from Jason Greenblatt, Trump's current special representative for international negotiations.

In February, Kushner said the unveiling would happen after Israel's April 9 legislative election, which was won by parties that support incumbent Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

The peace plan has two components, Reuters reported: A political piece that addresses core political issues such as the status of Jerusalem, and an economic part aimed to help the Palestinians strengthen their economy.

It is unclear if the plan will propose the creation of a Palestinian state, the Palestinians' core demand, the news agency reported.
