Pope Francis has expressed his desire to travel to Lebanon on several occasions.
The country’s President Michel Aoun said in April that the pope would visit the crisis-hit Middle Eastern nation of 6.8 million people in June.
Responding to Aoun’s announcement, Matteo Bruni, the director of the Holy See press office, described the trip as “a possibility that is being studied.”
The Vatican has never officially confirmed the papal visit to Lebanon. But it has said that the pope will visit the Democratic Republic of the Congo and South Sudan on July 2-7.
