Pope Francis intends to visit Azerbaijan.

Well-informed circles of the papal administration told that Pope Francis during his the 12th foreign visit intends to visit Azerbaijan, Georgia and Armenia.

According to preliminary information, a visit is planned for September of 2016.

Note that Pope Francis will set out on his 12th foreign journey on Feb. 12, this time heading for Mexico, the second most populous Catholic country in the world (after Brazil) where some 90 percent of its 125 million population are Catholic.

Observers note that Pope Francis’s visit to Armenia may again damage relations with Turkey.

Recall that Turkey’s ambassador to the Vatican, Mehmet Paçacı returned to Ankara late April 12, 2015, in protest at Pope Francis’ description of the events of 1915 as genocide and nearly 10 months later made decision to return its ambassador to the Vatican
