Pope Francis greets journalists on papal plane to Turkey

(Vatican Radio) Pope Francis briefly greeted journalists travelling with him on the flight to the Turkish capital, Ankara.

Please see below a English translation of his remarks made in Italian:

“Hello.   I welcome you and thank you for your company during this journey.  Your work is a support, a help and also a service for the world, reporting on this religious and humanitarian activity.  At this time, Turkey is a witness (to this) and one that offers help to many refugees from the areas of conflict.  I thank you for your work.  We’ll meet again on our return for the press conference.  Many thanks and have a good trip.”
