Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is set to meet the Pope Francis in the Vatican on December 2, according to Italian state news agency ANSA.
"Pope Francis will receive Israeli premier Benjamin Netanyahu in an audience on December 2," the agency said, citing "well-informed Vatican sources", according to Agence France Presse.
This will be Bibi's first meeting with the Pope - he publically snubbed the Catholic leader previously - and the two are set to talk Iran's nuclear program and peace talks with the Palestinians, AFP added.
Bibi had to pull out of the previously planned meeting in October due to "time constraints" - lets hope Netanyahu can deign himself to clear his schedule for the Pope this time!
