Lukashenko Met Metropolitan Pavel


On 11 March the President of the Republic od Belarus Alexander Lukashenko met Metropolitan of Minsk and Zaslaul Pavel. They discussed cooperation of the state and Belarusian Orthodox Church.

Metropolitan Pavel spoke about construction of the new BOC administrative complex on the territory of Minsk diocese.

The head of the state agreed with the initiative but emphasized that the project of the complex must answer its purpose.

A Church trusteeship council is planned to be created to carry out the project. Because counstruction will take time, one of Minsk complexes is planned to be used for big BOC events.

There is a lot of such places in Minsk, Alexander Lukashenko said.

He also told Metropolitan Pavel that there are several other problems that he is ready to discuss.

An upcoming meeting of Belarusian president with the members of BOC Synod has also been discussed.
