2009-09-16 17:05

Ilia II, the Catholicos Patriarch of All Georgia urged "not to take seriously" the statement of the Abkhazian clergy abou the separation of the Abkhaz Church from the Georgian one.


"The statement of the clergy of Abkhazia is an unserious statement. And we must not take it seriously. No-one can proclaim independency without the main church", he said - RIA Novosti.

Today Priest Vissarion, the acting head of Sokhumi-Abkhaz diocese, stated that the Abkhaz Orthodox Church declares its official separation from the Georgian Church.

Father David Sharashenidze, the Patriarchy spokesman, said that, in his view, no orthodox church will recognize the independency of the Abkhaz Orthodox Church.
