VATICAN, April 17. /TASS/. Pope Francis intends to visit Cuba in September, Federico Lombardi, the head of the Holy See press office, said on Friday.
"The Holy Father has taken into consideration the idea of making a stop in Cuba on the occasion of his upcoming trip to the United States," Lombardi said.
The pontiff's visit to the US is scheduled for September 22-27.
Pope Francis may become the third pontiff to visit Cuba. John Paul II paid a historical papal visit to the island in 1998. His successor Benedict XVI visited Cuba in 2012.
