As reported by the Regnum, the main purpose of the official trip of David Bakradze was negotiations on the return of the Monastery of the Cross in Jerusalem under the Georgia's authority. The Speaker of the Georgian Parliament discussed this matter with the Israeli Minister for Religious Affairs Yakov Margi. It was noted that the Israeli government should be fully informed about the initiative of the Georgian President.
"Naturally, the Monastery of the Cross is in the possession of the Jerusalem Patriarchate and we're holding negotiations with it; but it is very important that the Israeli government should be adequately informed about this process and included in it, since the monastery is located on the Israeli territory", EchoKavkaza led David Bakradze's words. According to him, Israel's Minister for Religious Affairs has promised to assist in finding an acceptable solution for all parties in frameworks of its jurisdiction.
Recall, the issue of the Monastery of the Cross became urgent after the statement by the President of Georgia that the Georgian side was negotiating with Israel on the return of the Monastery in Jerusalem. This information was denied by the Israeli government and the Jerusalem Patriarchate. At the same time, the Georgian Patriarchate has stated it had no information about this process.
