Pope-Kirill meet historic

Says spokesman

(ANSA) - Moscow, February 9 - The February 12 meeting at Havana Airport between Pope Francis and Russian Orthodox Patriarch Kirill will be "an historic meeting" but will not have any "political" significance, patriarchate spokesman Aleksandr Volkov said in Moscow Tuesday.
    Volkov said it was historic because "it marks a new step in dialogue and the development of our relations". But he stressed it "is a meeting between two religious leaders and therefore it makes no sense to see any political significance in it".
