Georgian President Salome Zurabishvili responded to the fact of holding the 26th General Session of the Inter-Parliamentary Orthodoxy Assembly in Tbilisi.
According to the president, what kind of Orthodox union can exist with the country that occupies not only our territories but also fights against religion and violates all Christian rules.
“Inter-Parliamentary Assembly of Orthodoxy ???? What does it mean? What kind of Orthodox union or relation can exist with the country that occupies not only our territories but also fights against religion and violates all Christian rules, prohibits joint prayer of Georgians and Ossetians, the blessing of parents’ graves and restoration of Georgian churches in Abkhazia !!!!
There is nothing Orthodox here! Russia usually uses religion for political purposes! And if that is true, why do we play this political game? “- writes Georgian President Salome Zurabishvili in the social network.
