Vatican-Israeli talks on diplomatic accord continue

Catholic World News - February 15, 2010

A joint Vatican-Israeli negotiating commission met last week to continue talks toward a juridical agreement establishing the rights of the Church in the Holy Land. The talks-- which were described in a Vatican communiqué as conducted in "an atmosphere of great cordiality"-- are aimed at fulfilling the terms of the original diplomatic accord that was signed in December 1993, paving the way for Vatican recognition of Israel and full diplomatic relations. The talks will continue in March.
