      Meeting of Serbian leadership with Serbian Patriarch
      10. April 2013

      At the Serbian Patriarchate, on 8 April 2013, His Holiness Irinej,
      Serbian Patriarch, met with Mr. Tomislav Nikolic, President of Serbia;
      Mr. Ivica Dacic, Prime Minister of the Government of Serbia and Mr.
      Aleksandar Vucic, First Vice President of the Government of Serbia. The
      members of the Holy Synod of Bishops attended the meeting, Their Graces
      Bishops: Vasilije of Srem, Irinej of Backa, Jovan of Sumadija and
      Joanikije of Budimlje-Niksic.

      Spokesman of the Serbian Orthodox Church, Bishop Irinej of Backa,
      addressed the media representatives after the meeting and said:
      “However, I am dismissing as improper and malicious all the insinuations
      that the Church allegedly wants to engage in politics and deliver
      decisions instead of the legally elected officials. That exists neither
      as an intention nor a thought. But if any non-government organization
      with small membership thinks that it has a right to be consulted by the
      government of the state, then the Church has even more rights to do the
      same since its believers are at the same time the absolute majority of
      citizens of this country.“
