“It was a very useful conversation. We have a whole program of joint efforts emerging. We aim to work together in the field of peacekeeping, taking into account the various hotspots on the planet where confrontation exists,” Patriarch Kirill told a press conference after a four-day visit to the United Kingdom at London’s Luton Airport on Tuesday evening.

The Anglican Church and the Russian Orthodox Church share the approach to understanding what the Church’s role should be in the face of conflict, he said

“Many times a question was asked: what is your position on Ukraine and something else… The only position is to reconcile people, defuse tension, end these bloody clashes, and the Church will do everything for being a peacekeeping force. And this is what we talked about today with the Archbishop of Canterbury,” the Russian Orthodox Church leader said.

The Church “supports in every possible way whatever positive there is in the relations between nations, trying to reconcile people,” he said.
