      Bishop Alexander: “Armed Forced should be withdrawn from the occupied lands”

      [ 02 Jul 2008 16:28 ]

      Baku. Lachin Sultanova–APA. Eparchy of Russian
      Orthodox Church’s last assembly positively valued
      the activity of Azerbaijani Orthodox Church in
      Moscow, Caspian and Baku Bishop Alexander said at
      press conference, APA reports.

      He noted that Moscow assembly discussed main
      subject on union of church. The assembly restored
      the activity of Church Court and passed a
      decision on deprivation of priests, who called
      for separation, from religious ranks. The
      assembly also covered events on 1020th
      anniversary of adoption of Christianity in
      Russia. Asked about roles of religious men in the
      solution to Nagorno Karabakh conflict Alexander
      noted that several forces tried to keep the
      conflict under religion as the conflict begun.
      Meeting of Azerbaijani and Armenian religious
      heads on the initiative of Russian Orthodox Church proved that it was not real.
      Bishop mentioned that political heads conducted
      negotiations on the settlement of the conflict
      and stressed that political heads had meetings by the help of religious men.
      “Russian Orthodox Church is interested in
      restoration of stability in the region. We want
      peaceful solution to Nagorno Karabakh conflict,
      implementation of adoptions by UN Security
      Council and General Assembly, withdrawal of Armed
      Forces from the occupied lands, returning of IDPs to their lands”, he said.

      Bishop touched upon the activity of untraditional
      religions in Azerbaijan and added that he was anxious about it.

      “People are involved in false sects by promising money”, he said.
