VATICAN CITY, June 4. /TASS/. Pope Francis is expected to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin for a second time and "such contacts are already becoming a good tradition," a high-ranking Vatican administration prelate told TASS commenting on the report that the meeting will be held on June 10.
The pontiff "is following Russia’s policy with great attention, deliberateness and benevolence and will be glad to exchange views with the Russian leader," the prelate stressed.
The Holy See press service said the papal audience for the Russian president in the Apostolic Palace will also envisage a meeting of the high guest with the Vatican secretary of state, Cardinal Pietro Parolin.
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Putin may meet with Pope Francis during his visit to Italy next week. "The possibility of this meeting is being discussed," Peskov told reporters.
Peskov earlier said that Putin was planning to visit Italy and attend the Expo-2015 universal exposition in Milan.
