UKBD TIMES DESK:

Pope Francis is set to arrive in Bangladesh for a three-day visit in the end of November this year at the invitation of prime minister Sheikh Hasina.

 

The visit, which has been in discussion for over a year, is likely to take place on 30 November to 2 December, reports news agency UNB.

 

Last year, Francis announced that he would ‘almost certainly’ visit India and Bangladesh in 2017.

 

This will be the first visit by any pope to Bangladesh in last 31 years. In 1986, pope John Paul II visited Bangladesh.
