ATHENS – Greece’s major opposition Coalition of the Radical Left (SSYRIZA) leader Alexis Tsipras will travel to the Vatican for a meeting with Pope Francis on Sept. 18, according to reports.

Social justice, unemployment, immigration and the Mideast crisis are on the agenda, the reports said.

Tsipras will reportedly be accompanied by leftist party spokesman Panos Skourletis and Walter Baier, coordinator of the European network for alternative thinking and political dialogue, Transform!

Since Pope Francis was elected to replace Pope Benedict XVI he has frequently spoken out about and acted on issues of poverty, earning himself the nickname, “Pope of the Poor.”

Tsipras in August spent two days at the semi-autonomous monastic community on Mount Athos in northern Greece, raising speculation he was trying to improve relations with the influential Orthodox Church. He has said he’s not a believe in God nor religious.
