Pope in Israel: Don't stop searching for peaceful solution to conflict

 

Pope Francis has landed in Israel and was welcomed by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Shimon Peres. Speaking after them, the pope urged "all those responsible not to stop searching for fair solutions to allow Israelis and Palestinians to live in peace."

 

The pope thanked his hosts and said that Israel's right to exist, as well as internationally recognized borders, must be recognized, much like those of the Palestinians to a nation and freedom of movement. (Attila Somfalvi)
