218

The Ecumenical Patriarchate, dated May 30, 2018, issued the following communiqué:
“The Holy Synod, gathered today under the presidency of His All-Holiness [the Ecumenical Patriarch], examined the request of the Schismatic Church of Skopje, which is also supported by the letter of the Prime Minister of the Old Republic of Macedonia (FYROM), H. Exc. Mr. Zoran Zaev, that the Ecumenical Patriarchate take the initiative of the return of this Church in the canonicity, under the name of Archdiocese of Ohrid. [The Holy Synod] has decided to seize this initiative and to do what is necessary under the intangible conditions of the historico-canonical powers and prerogatives of the first-place throne of the Ecumenical Patriarchate.”
