U.S. Special Representative for International Negotiations Jason Greenblatt shot down on  Monday a Fox News report claiming that the administration’s peace plan was complete and got the endorsement of the president.

“Sorry @FoxNews & @TreyYingst your sources gave you bad info,” Greenblatt tweeted on Monday. “While the plan is close to complete, we aren’t there yet & we’ll continue to refine it until release. 175 pages is also inaccurate. It’s a very detailed political/economic plan but not that long.”

According to the Fox News report, which is based on two senior administration officials, “fewer than five people have access to the complete document.”

According to one of the officials, “The plan is done. … [President Donald Trump] is happy with the parameters of the deal.” The officials said the plan would likely stay under wraps at least until the Israeli election on April 9.  “We are not going to do anything that threatens Israel’s security,” a senior administration official said.

The report said that Trump was “briefed by U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman, Senior Adviser Jared Kushner and special envoy for Mideast peace Jason Greenblatt multiple times on the specifics of the deal.”

Greenblatt and Kushner are expected to visit the region later this month to discuss their peace initiative. The administration has repeatedly dismissed various reports on the supposed provisions of the peace plan, describing them as false and misleading.
