Pope Francis received Czech Prime Minister Petr Fiala at the Vatican on June 9.

This is reported by Vatican News.

The conversation between the head of the Czech government and the Holy Father lasted about half an hour and ended with an exchange of gifts. In addition to the usual set of special editions of documents of his pontificate — in particular, the message for the Day of Peace and the document on universal brotherhood-the Pope presented the guest with a bronze medallion with the image of St. Martin of tours.

Among the gifts that the pontiff received was a towel embroidered by Czech and Ukrainian women. A Ukrainian two-color flag and a Czech tricolor were attached to the gift. The Dove of Peace, embroidered in the middle, symbolizes what the current world urgently needs.
