Pope Francis: I am Happy to Have Visited Armenia

Pope Francis said he was happy to visit Armenia after his three-day journey to the first Christian nation.

“I am happy to have visited Armenia, the first nation to accept Christianity as its religion, and I thank all for the welcome,” says a message on pontiff’s official Twitter that was posted minutes after his plane took off from Yerevan’s Zvartnots airport.

A farewell ceremony was held at the Zvartnots Airport, after which Francis Pope concluded his first visit to the first Christian country and returned to the Vatican.
