According to Reuters, the Vatican is weighing a meeting between Pope Francis and Patriarch Kirill of Moscow in Jerusalem this June.

“The Vatican is studying the possibility of extending Pope Francis’ trip to Lebanon in June so that he can travel to Jerusalem to meet with Russian Orthodox Patriarch Kirill,” Reuters reports. After returning from his trip to Malta on April 3, Pope Francis mentioned a possible meeting with the Patriarch of Moscow in the Middle East.

The British news agency explains that it obtained the information from two sources who “spoke on condition of anonymity.” According to those sources, “The plan is for the 85-year-old pope, who is due to visit Lebanon on June 12 and 13, to fly to Amman, Jordan, on the morning of June 14,” writes Vatican expert Philip Pullella.
