Pope Francis, King of Jordan Commit to Boosting Dialogue in Jerusalem

VATICAN CITY – Pope Francis met on Tuesday Jordan’s King Abdullah II to address the situation in the Middle East, especially with regards to Jerusalem.

During their encounter, Pope Francis and King Abdullah II confirmed their commitment to boosting dialogue between the involved parties.

“(The) cordial conversations focused above all on the theme of the promotion of peace and stability in the Mideast, with particular reference to the question of Jerusalem and the role of the Hashemite Sovereign as Custodian of the Holy Places,” the Vatican said in a statement.

“In this context, the commitment was renewed to encourage negotiations among the interested parties, as well as promoting inter-religious dialogue,” the statement added.

The pope had defended the “status quo” of Jerusalem after United States President Donald Trump recognized the holy city as Israel’s capital.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas telephoned the pope after the Dec. 6 decision.
