Pope Francis was welcomed by Kazakh President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev on Tuesday with an honour guard ceremony on the presidential palace within the capital, Nur-Sultan.
The pope, compelled to make use of a wheelchair and cane due to his strained knee ligaments, is on a three-day journey to the previous Soviet nation.
On Wednesday and Thursday, he’ll take part in an interfaith assembly with greater than 100 delegations of Muslim, Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, Shinto and different religion teams from 50 international locations.
Pope Francis had hoped his journey to Kazakhstan this week would provide an opportunity to satisfy with the pinnacle of the Russian Orthodox Church – who has justified the warfare in Ukraine – and plead for peace.
Patriarch Kirill bowed out a number of weeks in the past, however Francis went forward with the journey that’s however being overshadowed by Russia’s seven-month warfare.
