Gábor Pintér says Pope Francis' visit to Belarus may happen ‘in the near future’.

The Belarusian President and the pontiff met in the Vatican on Saturday.

On May 21, the Vatican hosted a meeting of the head of Belarus and the pontiff. It lasted 40 minutes.

It will happen in the Vatican on April 20.

It will happen if Patriarch Kirill of Moscow gives his consent.
