January 9th 2017: Pope Francis annual address to the Diplomatic Corps accredited to the Holy See

(...) The Holy See renews its urgent appeal for the resumption of dialogue between Israelis and Palestinians towards a stable and enduring solution that guarantees the peaceful coexistence of two states within internationally recognized borders.  No conflict can become a habit impossible to break.  Israelis and Palestinians need peace.  The whole Middle East urgently needs peace! (quotes from H.H speech)
