The Trump administration says it will unveil its much awaited ``Deal of the Century'' after the Israeli election on April 9.

Trump's senior Middle East adviser, son-in-law Jared Kushner, briefed participants at a Mideast conference in Poland Thursday about the plan. A diplomat who saw the presentation said Kushner wouldn't go into details but said the plan would be released sometime after Israel's election.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity according to protocol.

The diplomat quoted Kushner as saying that Trump had given him the Israeli-Palestinian ``file'' to give the long-elusive goal of a peace agreement ``a shot.'' Despite the long odds, he said he believed ``privately, people are much more flexible.''

The Palestinians have preemptively rejected the plan, saying the Trump administration is biased toward Israel.
