Meeting in Cyprus, leaders of the Orthodox churches have resolved to work to raise public awareness of the troubles facing Christians in the Middle East, and particularly in Syria.

The meeting in Nicosia—attended by Patriarchs Theodoros II of Alexandria, Ignatius IV of Antioch, and Theophilos II of Jerusalem, at the invitation of Archbishop Chrysostomos II of Cyprus—concluded with a statement of support for all peacekeeping efforts in Syria. The Orthodox leaders underlined the fact that Christians have been able to practice their faith freely in Syria, and committed themselves to working for restoration of peace there.
