The Georgian Orthodox Church has not made an official statement over this issue yet, the Imedi TV broadcaster said.
The Holy and Great Council of the Orthodox Church, also known as the Pan-Orthodox Council, is a planned synod of the bishops of all autocephalous local churches of Eastern Orthodox Christianity. The Council is set be held on the Greek island of Crete on June 16-27, after more than 50 years of preparations. The Bulgarian Orthodox Church, the Antiochian Orthodox Church, and the Serbian Orthodox Church refused to participate in the Council.
The Russian Orthodox Church did not send its spokesman Metropolitan Hilarion of Volokolamsk to Crete after a number of churches had not found it worthwhile sending its representatives to take part in composing the message of the Pan-Orthodox Council.
