Leading British prelate meets with Palestinian president

Catholic World News - September 12, 2013

Archbishop Vincent Nichols of Westminster met with Mahmoud Abbas, the president of the Palestinian National Authority, in London on September 11.

“I was pleased and honored to meet with President Abbas and his delegation,” said Archbishop Nichols. “Promoting a just peace for all in the Holy Land is a crucial issue which affects the whole world.”

“President Abbas said that the presence of Christians in the Holy Land was vital as they are not viewed as a minority but an integral part of the Palestinian community,” according to an archdiocesan statement. “He thanked the Church in this country for its work in supporting a peaceful solution, for its advocacy, for helping projects in Palestine and told of the Palestinian Authority’s collaboration with the Latin Patriarchate in Jerusalem on house building projects to enable Christians to remain in Jerusalem.”
