Teerat Ratanasevi posted the message on Twitter that the invitation was offered by Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra during her audience with the Roman Catholic leader on Thursday at the Vatican.

The date for the visit has not been set. Thailand set up diplomatic relations with the Holy See for 390 years. Pope John Paul II visited Thailand in 1984.
