Palestine became a non-member observer state of the United Nations on Thursday, November 29, 2012. The Latin Patriarchate thanks the Holy See for the quick response and statement in favor of the UN recognition. The statement was published in the Vatican news website.
The Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem is in agreement with the Holy See, and welcomed the good news for the Palestinian people, and congratulated them for this diplomatic success. This step marks a significant shift to meet the legitimate aspirations of the Palestinian people and is an incentive for peace.
The Patriarchate also congratulates President Mahmoud Abbas, considered as a moderate man and a man of peace.
