VATICAN CITY, September 28. /TASS/. Pope Francis has told reporters on the way back to Rome that his trip to the United States should not be considered as "political."
The pontiff, 78, spent six days in the United States after a four-day visit to Cuba.
"No politics should be seen here," Pope Francis said following his 10-day tour, the longest foreign trip of his pontificate, during which he met with both the Castro brothers and US President Barack Obama.
The trip became a triumph for Pope Francis, who has been already dubbed a "superstar" by the US mass media. The pontiff has stressed that he is just "a modest servant of the servants of God."
Meanwhile, analysts say that the pontiff’s statement that "it is impossible to resolve even a single most important global problem without Russia’s participation" helped the US administration to decide to organize a meeting between the Russian and US presidents in New York.
The next foreign visit of Pope Francis will take place in late November. This will be his first trip to the African continent, which will include visits to Kenya, Uganda and the Central African Republic.
