Pope John Paul has arrived in Kazakhstan for a four-day visit.
He was greeted at the airport by President Nursultan Nazarbayev
travelling into Astana, the capital of the former Soviet state.
Kazakhstan borders on several Central Asian countries which could be involved in military action against Afghanistan by the United States.
Some Vatican sources are saying, however, that the Americans have reassured the Pope that no strikes will take place while he is travelling.
