Pope in UAE for first Papal Arab visit

Feb 04, 2019 11:07 IST

Pope Francis is visiting Abu Dhabi on the first-ever papal trip to the Arabian Peninsula. Pope is seeking to turn a page in Christian-Muslim relations. Abu Dhabi's crown prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan greeted the pontiff at the airport alongwith the Grand Imam of Egypt's Al-Azhar mosque, Ahmed el-Tayeb. Francis and el-Tayeb are to address the "Human Fraternity Meeting" on Monday that has drawn not only Christian and Muslim representatives but hundreds of Jewish, Hindu, Buddhist and other Christian faith leaders.
