Symposium Of The Catholic Bishops's Conference On Jerusalem

October 26-27 October 1998

Attended by four cardinals (among whom Cal. Furno, Prefect of the Sacred Oriental Congregation and Cal. LAW of the U.S.) and by other 20 Archbishops and Bishops, the SYMPOSIUM was an initiative of the Holy See and of Patriarch Michel Sabbah in order to deepen the awareness of the Catholic Bishops' Conferences all over the world about the Jerusalem question.

The Vatican reiterated its stand in conformance with the International Community and the UN Resolutions that East-Arab Jerusalem is Illigally Occupied by Israeli forces in 1967.
