Pope Francis late Monday lauded President Shimon Peres and Palestinian Authority Mahmoud Abbas for having "the courage to move forward" after accepting the pontiff's invitation for a joint prayer meeting at the Vatican, AFP reported.

“The meeting in the Vatican is to pray together, it’s not a mediation,” the pope said on his return flight from a three-day Middle East tour.
