Catholic Policy on Partition to Be Framed Soon

POLICY OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH ON THE BRITISH PROPOSAL TO CREATE INDEPENDENT JEWISH AND ARAB STATES THROUGH THREE-WAY PARTITION OF PALESTINE WILL BE DETERMINED AT DISCUSSIONS TO BE LAUNCHED AT AN EARLY DATE, IT WAS LEARNED HERE TODAY.

SUBSTANCE TO THE EXPECTATION IS GIVEN BY THE PRESENCE IN ROME OF THE CHALDEAN PATRIARCH OF BAGHDAD, THE SYRIAN PATRIARCH AND PROMINENT LEBANESE ECCLESIASTICS, WHILE CATHOLIC PATRIARCH BARLASSINA OF JERUSALEM IS EXPECTED SOON.

THE CHALDEAN PATRIARCH, IT WAS LEARNED, IS SCHEDULED TO CONFER WITH POPE PIUS AND CARDINAL PACELLI ON NEAR EAST REPERCUSSIONS OF THE PALESTINE SITUATION AND THE POSITION OF HOLY PLACES.
