Will Pope Francis accept Kim Jong-un's invitation to Pyongyang?
North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has invited Pope Francis to visit the country. The invitation to visit Pyongyang will be delivered by South Korean president Moon Jae-in who will be in the Vatican this week as part of a trip to Europe.
North Korea and the Vatican have no formal diplomatic relations and no pope has ever visited the country.
"During the meeting with Pope Francis, we relay the message from chairman Kim Jong-un that he would ardently welcome the Pope if he visits Pyongyang,' Mr Moon's spokesman, Kim Eui-kyeom, told reporters.
