Patriarch John X, Patriarch of Antioch and All the East, received His Eminence Gregory Metropolitan of Cameroon and His Eminence John Metropolitan of Zambia, delegated by the Patriarch of Alexandria, Theodoros II, at the patriarchal residence in Balamand. The Metropolitans briefed the Patriarch on the developments that the patriarchate has witnessed after the creation of the African Exarchate by the Russian Church. The gathering also discussed the meeting of the patriarchs of the four apostolic churches proposed to be held by the Patriarchate of Constantinople before the Holy Week.
His Beatitude reiterated to the Alexandrian delegation what he had told the envoy of the Ecumenical Patriarch, Elder Metropolitan of Chalcedon, Emmanuel, that the Holy Antiochian Synod would meet soon to confer the developments in the Orthodox Church and take an appropriate stance on them.
The meeting was attended by His Eminence Elias Kfoury, Metropolitan of Tyre, Sidon, and dependencies.
