The King of Bahrain received the Pope at the Sakhir Palace.

Pope Francis arrived in Bahrain on a three-day visit, which marks the first visit of a Vatican head to the Gulf kingdom.

The plane carrying the Pope arrived in Sakhir, where he met King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa at the royal palace.

This is Pope Francis’ second trip to the Gulf region, after his trip to the UAE in 2019.

On Friday, the Pope will address the “Bahrain Dialogue Forum: East and West for Human Coexistence”, organized by the Council of Muslim Elders, based in the UAE, followed by a special meeting with Sheikh Al-Azhar Ahmed Al-Tayeb.
