HONOR UN RESOLUTIONS, CARDINAL SODANO SAYS

VATICAN, Apr 4, 02 (CWNews.com) -- Cardinal Angelo
Sodano, the Vatican Secretary of State, has stated that
a solution to the crisis in the Holy Land should be
based on approved UN resolutions.

In a column that appeared Thursday in the Italian daily
Avvenire, Cardinal Sodano wrote that existing UN
resolutions form the basis for a workable peace
agreement. The UN resolutions call for Israeli
withdrawal from Palestinian territories.

The cardinal added that in addition to diplomatic
efforts, "we must not forget that the prayers of
believers are very necessary" to the search for peace.
He said that all Christians "should unite with the
Pope's prayer, and that of all the Church, asking for
peace."
