Pope Arrives in Naypyidaw to Meet Suu Kyi, Myanmar President

NAYPYIDAW – Pope Francis reached the Presidential Palace in Myanmar’s capital Tuesday afternoon to meet the president of the country, as well as the de facto head of government.

The Pope was received by President Htin Kyaw at the square next to the Presidential Palace, where a platform had been constructed for the welcome ceremony.

After his meeting with the president, the Pope is expected to meet Myanmar’s de facto leader Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi, who the pontiff had also met in the Vatican in May.

The meetings comes a day after the Pope met General Min Aung Hlaing, who is blamed for a military offensive in Myanmar’s Rakhine region that has led to more than 620,000 Rohingyas, a Muslim minority community, to flee to Bangladesh.

Although details of the meetings are unlikely to be released publicly, the Pope is expected to discuss the Rohingya crisis with the two leaders.

Following the meetings, the Pope is set to travel to the International Convention Centre to address the first public gathering of his trip.
