Pope's trip to Holy Land confirmed (see previous).

(ANSA) - Vatican City, March 7 - Pope Francis' May 24-26 visit to the Holy Land will go ahead despite an Israeli foreign ministry labour dispute, Vatican sources said Friday.

A Vatican delegation will leave for Israel shortly to lay the groundwork for the visit, they said.

The Holy See is continuing to organise the pope's trip, trusting that the Israeli diplomats' strike will be over by May, they said.
