      Mt. Athos Leaders Talk Taxes With Samaras
      By Margarita Papantoniou on April 17, 2013

      The administration of the Holy Mount met Prime Minister Antonis Samaras
      in the Maximos Mansion on April 17 to go over financial matters and
      taxes concerning the famed Mt. Athos.

      According to the statement of the Deputy Foreign Minister Constantine
      Tsiaras who attended the meeting, the dominant theme was the 100-years
      celebration of the Holy Mount’s incorporation into the Greek State:

      “The Prime Minister’s meeting with the Athonite Fathers’ delegation was
      particularly constructive. The dominant matter of their discussion was
      the 100-years celebration from Holy Mount’s incorporation in the Greek
      State. Other issues that bother the Holy community and Mount Athos’
      monasteries were discussed. Through this hard financial situation, the
      government does whatever possible in order to deal with various matters
      and to give the possibility of answers to problems that for many years
      trouble the Holy Mount and the Greek community in general,” a statement
      said.

      Mt. Athos is situated in the eastern peninsula of Halkidiki, called the
      peninsula of Athos, and is a place dedicated to prayer and worship of
      God, earning it the name Holy Mount. It is a self- governed part of the
      Greek state, subject to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in its political
      aspect and to the Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinopole as regards its
      religious aspect.

      It has been divided into 20 self- governed territories consisting of a
      cardinal monastery and other monastic establishments that surround it,
      according to Mount Athos official website.
