Even though this is the first time both leaders have directly met, they had addressed each-other before. At the start of the G20 summit in Russia, the Pope sent a letter to Putin, urging world leaders to not respond to the Syrian crisis with military action.

Putin met with Benedict XVI in 2007 and with John Paul II, twice, in the year 2000 and again in 2003.
