full title: Turkeys Erdogan to meet with Pope, thank him for opposing Trumps recognition of Jerusalem as Israels capital.
The United States controversial recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel is expected to dominate talks between President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and Pope Francis on the presidents first trip to the Vatican on Sunday.
According to presidential sources, Erdoğan will thank Pope Francis for his stance against U.S. President Donald Trumps decision and his efforts to protect the status quo in the holy city.
The Turkish president previously expressed his appreciation to Pope Francis who strongly opposed the bitterly-contested move announced by Trump at the end of last year. The two leaders held several phone calls regarding the issue and voiced their determination to follow developments regarding Jerusalem.
The current humanitarian crisis in Syria, regional developments, terror, cooperation against Islamophobia and xenophobia are also among the topics which the two leaders are set to discuss during their meeting.
The Argentine pope met Erdoğan during his trip to Turkey in November 2014 as the first world leader to visit the Turkish presidential complex in Ankara. The return visit will be the first by a Turkish president since 1959.
Francis has repeatedly praised Turkeys efforts to welcome Syrian refugees and has said the country could be a great peacemaker.

This is a false pope. I have no doubt. And yet people still flock to him.....Christian Sheep

ONLY LEFTISTS flo k to him.
Frankie the lowlife scumbag marxist pope. Nothing more needs to be said.
Is this pope even catholic his actions make me wonder.
Thanks for the ping. Disgusting.
at least some people in the (RC) Church recognize the danger (as did, tho he got some blowback for it, Pope Benedict.. who at least had read the Koran... and the daily newspapers about Muslims and Islam’s extremely dangerous campaign to “conquer” Christendom)
I oppose the recognition of Jorge Bergoglio as Pope.
imho, probably he may yes
(not that it would change anything in Jerusalem, Israel...but it would serve, alas, to further demonstrate just how anti-Christian this pope has turned out to be.... please pray for him... he needs all of our prayers...thank you!)
“Why are Catholics worldwide not DENOUNCING him and protesting in the streets against him? “
Many of us ARE criticizing him on a daily basis. Others are ignorant of the situation. Let me ask you: Why aren’t YOU protesting in the streets against all kinds of things? Everything A-OK in your world?
A Pope in the hand is worth two in the bush... or something.
Here is statement in Daily Sabah (government mouthpiece) in Turkey.
“Erdogan to discuss Jerusalem, terrorism, Islamophobia with Pope Francis on Vatican visit”
