Pope Francis

PV Desk : Pope Francis will be here on Thursday afternoon on a three-day visit with a message of reconciliation, forgiveness and peace. A planned meeting with a small group of Rohingyas is expected to be a high point during the Pope’s Dhaka visit.

“As I prepare to visit Bangladesh, I wish to send a message of greeting and friendship to entire population. I look forward to the moment in which we shall be together,” he said in a message before leaving Rome for Myanmar.

Pope, who reached Yangon on Monday afternoon prior visiting Bangladesh, is scheduled to arrive at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport at 3pm on Thursday directly from Yangon after wrapping up his three-day visit there.
