The Pope Francis visits Burma

Believing recent accounts, Pope Francis will be visiting Burma this year, making him the first ever Pope to do so. The Union of Atlantic Asian News has announced that the Pope will travel through the countryside in the last November at President Htin Kyaw's invitat.

"Older Catholics " UCAN said the Pope is supposed to be arriving on November 27th and will stay four days in Burma. While the Pope had originally planned to travel to Bangladesh and India during this era, springs suggest that this journey has proven onerous. Instead, he will now be reported to make a stop in Burma before going to Bangladesh and will stay in both Naypyidaw and Rangoon.

In spite of the historical importance of the incident (should it take place), it is another issue whether Pope Francis is greeted by the population.
