Archbishop Makarios of Australia was in Athens, Greece this week to participate in roundtable discussions about the current war in Ukraine.

According to Orthodox Times, Archbishop Makarios visited the Representation Office of the Ecumenical Patriarchate in Athens during his brief visit.

The Archbishop was welcomed to the offices by Metropolitan Theodoretos of Laodicea, Director of the Office and representative of the Ecumenical Patriarchate in Athens.

During a meeting, the pair discussed issues of common interest, as well as the progress of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of Australia.

This latest visit to Greece comes as the Archbishop also travelled a number of times to the country last year to hold meetings with Greece’s Prime Minister, Kyriakos Mitsotakis, and Greece’s Foreign Minister, Nikos Dendias.

In September 2022, Archbishop Makarios also paid an official visit to the Greek island of Kastellorizo.
