Pope’s Visit to be Discussed Upon His Return to Vatican

YEREVAN (Noyan Tapan)–A private visit of John Paul II to Catholicos of All Armenia’s Karekin I scheduled for June 18 has been postponed because of temporary indisposition of the pontiff.

St. Etchmiadzin press service reported that John Paul II expressed hope that in the near future he would be able to make an ecumenical pilgrimage to Armenia.

Some sources report that a final decision on the Pope’s visit to Armenia will be made after he returns to Vatican.
