President Pavlopoulos receives Jerusalem Patriarch

President of the Hellenic Republic Prokopios Pavlopoulos on Friday received visiting Jerusalem Patriarch Theophilos at the presidential mansion, expressing the Greek state’s unequivocal support for the Greek Orthodox Patriarchate in Jerusalem.

Noting that Christian values were part of western and European civilisation, as well as those that the world needs, Pavlopoulos expressed hope “that your work will bear fruit and that these principles and values that we all profess are those that prevail, so that the world can once again find the path to peace and creativity.”

The patriarch conveyed the greetings of the Brotherhood of the Holy Sepulchre and thanked the president for his support of the Patriarchate.
