 On 24 April the Holy See Press Office published the following communiqué on the Pope's audience with Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazen), president of the Palestinian Authority. "This morning, the Holy Father Benedict XVI received in audience Mahmoud Abbas, president of the Palestinian Authority, accompanied by his entourage. President Abbas then went on to meet Cardinal Secretary of State Tarcisio Bertone SDB, who was accompanied by Archbishop Dominique Mamberti, secretary for Relations with States. "In the course of the cordial discussions, attention turned to the situation in the Middle East. Particular appreciation was expressed for the commitment - thanks also to the help of the international community - to re-launch the peace process between Israelis and Palestinians. Talks also dwelt upon the internal Palestinian situation with reference, among other things, to the difficulties faced by Catholics, and the value of their contribution to that society."
