The Vatican officially recognized the Palestinian Authority as a state in an agreement that was signed last month. The treaty, which took 15 years of negotiations to complete, was bitterly condemned by Israel as a setback for the peace process. Vatican officials have described the agreement as reflecting the Church's desire to see the conflict in the Holy Land resolved by a "two-state" solution.
