Pope Francis' Visit to the United Arab Emirates

دبي, United Arab Emirates Politics, Current Affairs, Cultural, Breaking News January 13 @ 4:20am

Next month, Pope Francis will become the first head of the Catholic Church to visit the Arabian Peninsula in a trip that promises to be full of symbolism. The Pope's host, the United Arab Emirates, looks to be the main beneficiary in what is has billed as its own 'Year of Tolerance.' The trouble is the country is mired in a conflict in Yemen and is a staunch supporter of maverick Saudi Arabian crown prince Mohammed bin Salman. In the midst of such dualities, no wonder the visit has a particular significance.

I am available to cover and report the event locally.
