His Holiness Pope Francis, the Head of the Catholic Church and Sovereign of the Vatican City, spent Monday afternoon meeting religious leaders.

His visit is being seen as a milestone for interfaith relations in the UAE and the rest of the Middle East. Pope Francis has made boosting ties between Christianity and Islam a cornerstone of his papacy and the UAE government has declared 2019 as the year of tolerance.

Pope Francis and His Eminence the Grand Imam of al-Azhar, Dr. Ahmed At-Tayyeb visited the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque where they attended the Muslim Council of Elders.

The two men then attended the Global Conference of Human Fraternity and gave speeches before signing a document of Human Fraternity.
