      BEIRUT: Greek Orthodox Patriarch John X Yazigi said Wednesday the church
      could not sanction the Orthodox Patriarchate of Jerusalem’s decision to
      establish a new diocese in Qatar.

      Yazigi said in a statement the move violated the laws of the
      All-Orthodox Church, “because it required the approval of the Greek
      Orthodox Church of Antioch and Qatar lies in its territory.”

      The decision was a “a direct intervention into the affairs of the Greek
      Orthodox Church of Antioch,” the statement added.
