The President of Austria, Alexander Van der Bellen, has visited the Pope at the Vatican. It is the second meeting between the two.

'I am glad that we are meeting for a second time'.

President Van der Bellen surprised the Pope by giving him 20 goats as a gift, though he only brought photos of them to the Vatican.

The goats will be given to families in Burundi through the charity Caritas. 

'This is a message, a message'.

In return the Pope gave him a mosaic of Noah caring for nature. 

'Creation opens paths to salvation'.

It was a fitting gift since President Van der Bellen is the spokesman of Austria's Green Party, and two discussed topics related to climate change and the pandemic.

He was accompanied during his visit by his wife, Doris Schmidauer.
