ROME: ‘ Vatican Sign First Accord with Palestine Backing 2-State Solution ‘

#AceNewsReport – ROME:June.26: The Vatican Friday signed a historic first accord with Palestine, two years after officially recognizing it as a state, AFP reported.

A treaty covering the life and activity of the Church in Palestine was the first since the Vatican recognized the Palestinian state in February 2013.

The step was agreed in principle last month.

It was condemned by Israel as a setback for the peace process.
