    ISRAEL – VATICAN

    Agenda change in Israel-Holy See talks



    Jerusalem (AsiaNews) – The Israeli government informed the Holy See at the last moment that its delegation would not take part in today's talks, this according to news agencies reports.  The cancelled meeting between Israeli and Vatican representatives was scheduled to discuss the issue of municipal tax exemptions for the Church.

    AsiaNews sources in Jerusalem confirmed that the two delegations did not meet.

    Tomorrow's scheduled meeting is still expected to take place but without any certainty as to what will be discussed.

    News agencies report that Israel's Ambassador to the Holy See referred to 'contingent factors' to explain the cancellation, stressing however that "the parties will discuss next month" the issues at the centre of the talks". (DS)

    The coalition led by Riyadh blocks the arrival of fuel needed to run the wells. Over a million people without water in Taiz, Saada, Hodeida, Sana'a and Al Bayda. According to UNICEF, 1.7 million children suffer from acute malnutrition”; 150,000 children are likely to die in the coming weeks. The silence and neglect of the international community. The threat of hitting crude-cargo ships. Yesterday, Saudi Arabia allowed the reopening of Sana'a airport and Hudayda port, but only for humanitarian aid. An insufficient measure.
