Pope Francis will land in Yerevan, the Armenian capital, early Friday afternoon. After praying in the cathedral, he will visit the President of the Republic Serzh Sargsyan and meet with Karekin II, Catholicos, the chief bishop of the Armenian Apostolic Church.

On Saturday, Pope Francis will visit the memorial of the Armenian genocide and move to the city of Gyumri to celebrate a mass. After he will return to Yerevan to lead a prayer for peace.
