The president gave the Pope a tiled scene of old Jerusalem.

After the meet and greet, both heads of state discussed, privately, the troubled situation in the Middle East.

The Vatican says the discussion focused specifically on the need to find a just and lasting solution to the long standing Israel-Palestinian conflict.

The Presidents visit comes after days of protests in the West Bank and Gaza.
