The Vatican
And The PLO

New York (JTA) — In a move
that has been expected for some
time, the Vatican this week es-
tablished ties with the Palestine
Liberation Organization.
"I don't think there is any neg-
ative element," said Avi Granot,
counselor for church affairs at the
Israeli Embassy in Washington,
noting that Israel itself has ties
with the PLO.
"If anything, I can see the pos-
itive aspect of the Vatican having
relations with everyone in the re-
gion and working toward the pro-
motion of peace and friendship,"
said Mr. Granot.
"It is all for the good," said Eu-
gene Fisher, director of the Na-
tional. Conference of Catholic
Bishops. 'Me more contacts that
are peaceful, the better."
Under terms agreed upon this
morning in Vatican City, the PLO
will open an office at the Holy See,
and the apostolic nuncio in
Tunisia, long-time home of the
PLO, will be responsible for con-
tacts with leaders of the PLO.
The ties fall short of full diplo-
matic relations.
The Vatican-PLO talks began
almost immediately after the Vat-
ican's establishment of diplomat-
ic ties with Israel last December.
They were concluded this week
by Abdul Lateef Abu Hijleh, di-
rector-general of the PLO's polit-
ical department, and Archbishop
Jean-Louis Tauran, secretary for
the Holy See's relations with
states.
In a statement reported by the
Vatican Information Service, Vat-
ican Press Officer Joaquin Navar-
ro-Valls said the relations "sought
a way to give a permanent and of-
ficial character to 'work contacts'
which had existed for many
years."
He added that the Vatican and
the PLO had established "stable
and official relations," not "true
and proper diplomatic relations."
In a joint communique, the
Vatican and the PLO said their
increased dialogue is designed "to
enable both parties to contribute
jointly to the search for peace and
justice which is proceeding in the
Middle East."
The Vatican spokesman, in his
statement, said the Vatican had
not changed its stand regarding
unresolved issues in the Middle
East, including "the situation of
the Palestinian people" and "the
question of an adequate status for
the holy city of Jerusalem."
Among the areas of PLO-Vat-
ican collaboration he outlined are
"a further possibility for the
Catholic Church to perform its
spiritual, educational and social
mission in favor of Palestinian
Catholics and all Palestinians,"
support for the peace process "and
encouragement above all for the
leaders who wish it."
