Pope Francis Visits the Holy Land

Francis practices diplomacy in Israel and Palestine.

May 27, 2014

During a two-day visit to Israel and Palestine, Pope Francis met with leaders from both sides of the Middle East conflict. He has convinced Israeli President Shimon Peres and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas to meet with him together at the Vatican. This, after talks deteriorated between the two parties and Secretary of State John Kerry on a Vatican trip that was slated to be "strictly religious."
