Bartholomew and Tsipras discuss MOC-OA
The Macedonian Orthodox Church-Ohrid Archbishopric (MOC-OA) was one of the topics of discussion between Greek Orthodox Church Archbishop Hieronymos and Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew on Monday.

- Discussions referred to the issues of the Skopje church, the autocephaly request by the church of Ukraine, as well as the two Greek soldiers detained in Turkey's Edirne, said the Greek Church.

After the meeting with Hieronymos, the Ecumenical Patriarch visited the presidential palace and met with the Greek president, and after a 45-minute meeting with Prokopis Pavlopoulos, Bartholomew also met with the Prime Minister of Greece, Alexis Tsipras.

The Bartholomew-Hieronymos meeting comes a few days after the press release by the Ecumenical Patriarchate, which said actions would be undertaken towards "bringing the Skopje church back within the canonical framework under the name Ohrid Archbishopric.
