Seoul sources stated that North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has invited Pope Francis to visit Pyongyang, the South Korean presidential office said on Tuesday. Accordingly the invitation was revealed during a press briefing here about South Korean President Moon Jae-in's upcoming visit to Europe, which includes a trip to the Vatican on October 17 and 18.



Meanwhile Presidential spokesperson Kim Eui-kyeom, according to Yonhap news agency said "Chairman Kim (Jong-un) said he will 'ardently welcome the Pope if he visits Pyongyang'".
