Chinese reports: Vatican delegation to travel to China to finalize agreement

The association, based in Jerusalem and Milan, supports the Franciscan Custody of the Holy Land. Russia and Turkey agreed September 17 to create a demilitarized buffer zone in Idlib province to separate government forces from rebel fighters based...
