Pope receives a delegation from the Bundestag

Pope Tawadros II, Pope of Alexandria and Patriarch of St. Mark See, received today a delegation from the Bundestag  at the papal headquarter in St. Mark Cathedral. The delegation was headed by Mrs. Gidi Bensen, Chairperson of the Commission on Human Rights and Humanitarian Aid of the Bundestag

The Bundestag is the German federal parliament. It can be compared to the lower house of parliament along the lines of the United States House of Representatives, the Irish Dáil Éireann or the House of Commons of the United Kingdom, with the Bundesrat, though a separate institution, having a similar role to the upper house of a bicameral parliament.
