Today, Saturday, September 25, President of Cyprus Nikos Anastasiadis is expected to meet Archbishop Elpidophoros of America.
The meeting was announced by President Anastasiadis during his speech at the dinner hosted in his honor by the Federation of Cypriot American Organizations in New York.
As reported by ANA-MPA, referring to the incident with the Archbishop of America, the president of Cyprus noted, among other things, that “in recent days we have experienced some moments of bitterness because no one can invoke his own pain he forgets that some others also became refugees by those who turned his own family into refugees.”
He also pointed out that “I do not want any problem to be created with the diaspora community because the head of the Church in the USA has a role to play.”
He assured that “despite the bitterness and wanting to feel that we are all united we should delete what happened, there was an explanation, I want to believe that the mistake was recognized tomorrow (editor’s note: today Saturday) and I will convey to the Archbishop the bitterness and the frustration that has been caused.”
