Ilia II: Georgia and Armenia are Christian oases in Muslim world
Georgia and Armenia are Christian oases in the Muslim world, Catholicos-Patriarch of All Georgia Ilia II said during his meeting with the Armenian community representatives.

“We live in difficult times. Armenia and Georgia are Christian oases in the Muslim world. I remember my meeting with Pope Francis at the Vatican. He looked at the map and said Georgia and Armenia are in difficult geopolitical situation, and they are Christian oases. Therefore, we must be attentive to each other,” he said.

Patriarch Ilia II said Armenia and Georgia must take care of their relationship.

Representatives of the Armenian community present at the meeting said that they are Georgians and share Georgia's pain. At the same time, they expressed hope that with joint efforts they will be able to overcome all problems.

Poet Givi Shahnazar, members of the Union of Armenians in Georgia and Council on Inter-religious Relations at the Patriarchate were present at the meeting.
