Vatican, Israeli negotiators meet again; still no accord

Catholic World News - December 10, 2010

Vatican and Israeli negotiators met in Jerusalem on December 9 to continue discussions aimed at resolving a decades-long impasse on the establishment of a juridical accord assuring the legal status of Church institutions in the Holy Land.

The meeting was held in a “good and open atmosphere,” a joint communiqué assured, and dates for new negotiating sessions were set for next year. But the statement gave no indication that a final accord was close.

During the meting, Vatican representatives delivered a message from Pope Benedict XVI, expressing sympathy for the families affected by a fire that swept across northern Israel, including Mount Carmel, earlier this week.
