      The Romanian Patriarchate expresses solidarity with the Patriarchate
      of Antioch

      While noticing that - from April 22, 2013, when His Eminence
      Metropolitan PAUL of Aleppo and Alexandretta, from the Greek-Orthodox
      Patriarchate of Antioch and All the East, and His Eminence Metropolitan
      GREGORIOS YOHANNA IBRAHIM of Aleppo, from the Syrian Patriarchate of
      Antioch and All the East, were kidnapped while spiritually assisting the
      Arabic Christian community around the border of Syria - the two bishops
      were not yet released, the Romanian Orthodox Church expresses its
      solidarity with the Greek-Orthodox Patriarchate of Antioch and All the
      East and the Syrian Patriarchate of Antioch and All the East, and is
      praying and hoping for the release of the two hierarchs, as an act of
      respect for the community of believers that they pastorally care for.

      In this respect, the Romanian Patriarchate supports the recent appeal of
      His Beatitude JOHN X, Greek-Orthodox Patriarch of Antioch and All the
      East, for the release of the two bishops, prays and hopes that in this
      part of the Middle East peace and good-understanding between people of
      different beliefs and cultures will be restored very soon.
