Vatican envoy at UN reaffirms 2-state solution to Israel-Palestine conflict

Catholic World News - November 04, 2010

The Vatican’s representative at the United Nations repeated the Holy See’s support for a two-state solution to the Israel-Palestine conflict in a November 3 presentation.

Speaking at a UN session on the Relief and Works Agency for Palestinian Refugees in the Near East, Archbishop Francis Chullikatt called for adherence to existing UN resolutions and urged “significant and substantive dialogue in order to bring stability and peace to the Holy Land.” He said that “all hurdles to negotiations, particularly those of recent origin, which hinder free, mutual communication and the respectful exchange of positions, must be addressed in a responsible fashion without delay.”
