At roughly 18.10 pm, Rome time, Israel's President, Shimon Peres arrived to the  Vatican's Casa Santa Marta, where he was welcomed by Pope Francis. They made their way to a residence hall and exchanged a few words before the cameras. They then held a private meeting for a few moments. 

About 20 minutes later, at 18.28pm, the President of Palestine, Mahmoud Abbas,  was welcomed by Pope Francis. Together they walked into the same residence hall before holding a brief meeting.

Their arrival marks the beginning of a much anticipated meeting, where Jewish, Christian and Muslim prayers will be said, to pray for peace in the Holy Land.
