TBILISI, June 14. /TASS/. Catholicos-Patriarch of all Georgia Ilia II has sent a letter to Archbishop of Constantinople, New Rome and Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew I to notify the hierarch that the delegation of the Georgian Orthodox Church will not take part in the Pan-Orthodox Council due June 17-26 in Crete, Greece.
"With great respect I want to tell you and the primates of all Orthodox Churches that the Holy Synod of the Georgian Orthodox Church held a meeting on June 10 to consider the situation around the Pan-Orthodox Council and decided that the delegation of the Georgian Orthodox Church will not be able to take part in the council," the message says.
Ilia II explained that the Holy Synod’s resolution "first of all proceeds from the desire to at least partially avoid deepening of problems in the church on a number of issues.".
