VATICAN CITY:

Arab Times - - LOCAL -

Pope Fran­cis plans to visit the United Arab Emi­rates in Fe­bru­ary to make a strong push for Chris­tian-Mus­lim di­a­logue and peace in the re­gion, the Vatican said Thurs­day.

The Feb 3-5 trip to Abu Dhabi cen­ters around an in­ter­faith meet­ing. Fran­cis, though, will also have the chance to meet with the re­gion’s lead­er­ship as well as the UAE’s Catholic com­mu­nity, which is unique in that it is made up al­most ex­clu­sively of for­eign work­ers. (AP)
