[2/3/2019 2:53:34 PM]

AMMONNEWS - Pope Francis has landed in Abu Dhabi as part of his historic three-day visit to the United Arab Emirates, the first by any pontiff to the Arabian Peninsula.

The visit marks an effort to boost the Vatican’s outreach to Islam.

Pope Francis, who has made strengthening ties between the two largest religions a cornerstone of his papacy, is expected to have talks with the UAE’s crown prince on Monday and hold an open-air mass for 135,000 worshipers on Tuesday.
