Pope Francis has been advocating for peace between Israeli and Palestinian people during his Holy Land pilgrimage.

According to CBC News, the pontiff has organized a meeting between the Presidents of Israel and Palestine at the Vatican.

He described the stalemate in peace talks unacceptable and publicly backed Palestine's bid for statehood.
The meeting between Presidents is largely symbolic as they are expected to join with him in praying for peace.
