Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Bekir Bozdağ will attend the installation Mass of Pope Francis in Vatican City on Tuesday.

Francis, the first pope from Latin America, was elected on Wednesday and has been staying in a hotel on the Vatican's premises until the papal apartment is ready.

On Tuesday, Bozdağ will join other world leaders and senior international envoys, including US Vice President Joe Biden and Taiwanese President Ma Ying-jeou, for Francis' formal installation as pope.

Former pope Benedict XVI resigned Feb. 28, the first pontiff in 600 years to step down.
