Greece's President Prokopis Pavlopoulos is in Israel today at the invitation of his Israeli counterpart to participate in the memorial services at Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum.
Pavlopoulos will join heads of State from around the world including Russia's Vladimir Putin and Prince Charles to honour the memory of the victims of the Holocaust.
The President met with Patriarch Theophilos III of Jerusalem earlier in the day and reassured him that the Greek State "is on your side and on the side of the Patriarchate of Jerusalem, in your struggle for the defense of the principles and values of Orthodox Christianity."

 "And in this context, we are looking forward, citing as a prime example that of the Church of Greece, to your unequivocal support for the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople and the Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew in his own struggle to represent and support Orthodox Christians everywhere, especially in our present dark and troubled times," Pavlopoulos noted.
