The head of the church of Cyprus wished that logic prevails and that things do not reach the extremes in Cyprus as well.
Commenting on the escalation in the Caucasus region, Archbishop Chrysostomos II of Cyprus estimated that the situation in the South-eastern Mediterranean is worse and a Greek-Turkish conflict could lead to the dissolution of the South-eastern wing of NATO.
The Turkish president is taking advantage of Europeans and their financial interests, he added. They aimed at softening the situation in various ways, he continued, while stating that vetoes are not for small states.
Archbishop Chrysostomos, who presided over the Divine Liturgy at the Holy Monastery of St. Neophytos, also criticized the position of Russia, which incites and supports Turkey, as he said, not because Russia loves Turkey, but because it seeks to maintain its monopoly on gas sales in Europe.
Besides, the Primate of the Church of Cyprus is facing a problem with the sixth vertebra of his spinal cord, as he stated. Because of this problem, he finds it difficult to walk but also to stand, he said. Archbishop Chrysostomos, in a relevant remark of a journalist, said that the spirit is free and is not hindered. However, he said that his doctors recommended him to rest and stay in bed for a long time, something that his duties do not allow him to do and that is why he suffers a bit. He concluded by saying that his health is developing satisfactorily.
