MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russian President Vladimir Putin will meet with Pope Francis in the Vatican on June 10,.

“The Roman Pope will receive President Putin in the Vatican on June 10,” AP reported, citing a source in the Holy See.

A possible meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Pope Francis was in the works, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said earlier.

"The possibility of such a meeting is being worked out,” Peskov told reporters.

The Kremlin announced earlier in the week that Putin would visit the Expo 2015 in the Italian city of Milan. A number of meetings with the Italian side have been scheduled.

It will be the second meeting between Pope Francis and Putin; the first was held in the Vatican in December 2013.

Putin twice met Pope John Paul II in 2000 and 2003, and Pope Benedict XVI once in 2007.
