Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis met Archbishop Elpidophoros of America at the offices of the Permanent Representation of Greece to the United Nations.
Following the meeting, a top government source said: “The issue is over. What matters is the unity of Greek community, the inseparable relationship of Greece with the Archdiocese of America and the close relations of the Archdiocese with its flock.”
In fact, the Archbishop shook hands with the CEO of Pfizer, Dr. Alberto Bourla, upon his departure from the meeting with the Greek prime minister, as reported by The National Herald.
They discussed issues of the Greek diaspora, and ways of cooperation for the optimal support of the Archdiocese’s work, government sources said. They also reaffirmed the close, historical ties of mutual trust and cooperation that bond the Archdiocese and its flock with Greece.
At the meeting, the Archbishop presented the timetable for the full reopening of new St. Nicholas chapel at Ground Zero, the original of which was destroyed during the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
The meeting took place shortly before Mitsotakis’ scheduled appearance at the UN where he will address the General Assembly.
Mitsotakis and Archbishop Elpidophoros also met with Albert Bourla, Chairman and CEO of Pfizer.
Among those present at the meeting were Ambassador of Greece to the United States Alexandra Papadopoulou, Permanent Representative of Greece to the UN Maria Theofili, and Consul General of Greece in New York Konstantinos Koutras as well as members of the media.
