Prime Minister of Poland gives Pope a small apple tree

2015-06-12

This is how Pope Francis welcomed Poland's prime minister Ewa Kopacz to the Vatican.

During their short meeting, both leaders talked about international matters, including the conflict in Ukraine.

Of course they also discussed details of the next World Youth Day which will take place in Poland in July 2016.

As a gift, the prime minister gave the Pope a typical polish tree. Pope Francis gave her in turn a medallion of St. Martin of Tours and a copy of Evangelii Gaudium.

"Thank you very much.”
"It comes from paradise on Earth.”

As the Pope usually does with world leaders, he asked her to pray for him.

"Thank you. Thank you very much. Pray for me.”
"Thank you”.
