      The first ever visit of a Russian Orthodox Church hierarch to Yemen

      Moscow, December 7, Interfax - Metropolitan Kirill of Smolensk and
      Kaliningrad is in Yemen in these days for the first ever visit of a Russian
      Orthodox Church hierarch to this country.

      Answering questions from journalists at the Sana airport concerning the
      purpose of his visit, His Eminence underlined that his visit was 'one of
      the steps made by the Moscow Patriarchate to promote the Christian-Muslim
      dialogue'.

      Metropolitan Kirill noted that 'traditionally friendly relations between
      the peoples of Russia and Yemen offer a considerable potential for the
      development of this dialogue'.

      The high-ranking representative of the Moscow Patriarchate was met at the
      airport by the Minister of Vaqufs and Moral Orientation, Sheikh Ahia Najar,
      and other officials, the official web-site of the Russian Church has
      reported on Wednesday.
