VATICAN CITY (Reuters) – Papal envoy Cardinal Matteo Zuppi will travel to Beijing on Tuesday in a diplomatic effort to help end the war in Ukraine, some Italian newspapers reported.
Cardinal Zuppi is likely to meet “top institutional leaders” including Chinese Premier Li Qiang on Wednesday, La Repubblica daily noted.
The envoy already visited Kyiv and Moscow in June and travelled to Washington the following month as part of the Vatican’s efforts to broker a peace deal between Ukraine and Russia.
