“I will be visiting Greece and Cyprus in the first weekend of December,” Pope Francis told Argentinian news agency Telam during an interview on Friday.

According to Italian media, the pontiff is likely to visit refugee facilities at the island of Lesvos.

Pope Francis last visited Lesvos in April 2016, when he met with both Greek Orthodox Patriarch Bartholomew and Archbishop of Athens & All Greece Hieronymos.
