"Said information is false, similar rumors were disseminated before", - the patriarchate's press service stated.

It will be remembered that Ilia II that has been in charge of the Georgian church for 33 years recently marked his 78th birthday. As reported, all operational churches served a prayer service for the health of Patriarch.

Besides, over the past two years the Patriarch has undergone a complete course of treatment in Germany.

At the end of 2010 president of Georgia Mikheil Saakashvili awarded the Catholicos-Patriarch a Shota Rustaveli state premium and a gold medal for a special contribution into creation and development of contemporary Georgian icon painting and church music.
