  • [01] Pope meets Ecumenical Patriarch

    ISTANBUL (ANA-MPA/A. Kourkoulas) - Ecumenical Patriarch Vartholomeos met in Rome on Thursday with Pope Benedict XVI, a Vatican spokesman said.

    Also present at the meeting was Pergamos Metropolitan Ioannis, the Orthodox president of the Theological Dialogue Committee between the Catholic and Orthodox Church.

    Patriarch Vartholomeos and Pope Benedict had met for the first time during the Pope's official visit to the Phanar on November 30, 2006, and for the second time last year in October during the Patriarch's visit to Naples.

    Patriarch Vartholomeos and Pope Benedict also held a joint prayer at the Chapel of Urban VI.

    [02] Greek-German cultural ties

    BERLIN (ANA-MPA/P. Stangos) - Culture Minister Michalis Liapis and his German counterpart, Minister of State for the Chancellery Bernd Neumann, discussed the strengthening of Greek-German relations in the sector of culture here on Thursday.

    The first specific cooperation result of the meeting was the pursuit of joint productions in the cinema sector, as well as the two countries' decision for coordination at European level, which the German minister termed an "axis between Greece and Germany."

    Speaking after the meeting, Liapis termed cooperation between Greece and Germany in the cultural sector "longstanding and unique." He added that "I am here so that we can widen this cooperation."

    On his part, Neumann said his meeting with Liapis was a "pleasant surprise" due precisely to the specific character of the fields of deepening cooperation, such as in the cinema sector.

    The minister then inaugurated, during a special ceremony held in a hall of the Pergamos Museum, Greece's participation in the exhibition titled "21st century Museums."
