Pope Praises North Macedonia as ‘Secure Haven’ for Migrants

Pope Francis returned to the topic of immigration Tuesday, praising officials in North Macedonia for their warm welcome to migrants.

On the last day of his apostolic visit to the Balkans, the pope told authorities he wanted to recognize the “generous efforts” made by North Macedonia

“to welcome and provide assistance to the great number of migrants and refugees coming from different Middle Eastern countries,” a welcome provided both by State authorities as well as various international agencies,

including the Red Cross, Caritas, and several NGOs.

the pope said. “With you, they found a secure haven,” he added.
