Viorica Dancila is paying a visit to Vatican on May 10-13. As was the case of her previous visit to Israel, the visit was announced very late and the detailed schedule was sent to the media shortly before her meeting with the Pope.

No information was available by Friday afternoon about what she would do during her visit on Saturday and Sunday.
