Welcomes the positive gestures by the government of Turkey, including: (1) allowing the liturgical celebration by the Ecumenical Patriarch at the historic Sumela Monastery, (2) returning the former Greek Orphanage on Buyukada Island to the Ecumenical Patriarchate, and (3) returning the 190 hectares of forestland to the Greek Orthodox foundation listed as owner-of-record of the Theological School of Halki.
Urges the government of Turkey to facilitate the reopening of the Ecumenical Patriarchate's Theological School of Halki and to address other longstanding concerns relating to the Ecumenical Patriarchate.
