‘Thoughtful and constructive’ meeting between Vatican, Israeli diplomats

Catholic World News - February 12, 2014

Representatives of the Holy See and the State of Israel met in Jerusalem on February 11 to continue negotiating a diplomatic accord establishing the legal and economic rights of Church institutions in the Holy Land.

Noting that only a few issues remain, both parties issued a joint statement in which they “took note of the progress achieved, in a thoughtful and constructive atmosphere, since the last plenary of June 2013.”

The parties are scheduled to meet again at the Vatican in June.
