In a statement, Professor Anastasios Tamis from the Interparliamentary Assembly on Orthodoxy, said the event will “promote the cultural aspects of Orthodoxy” and emphasise “the need for these monuments to be dully respected and preserved in their host countries.”

The new book has the support of Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew and Archbishop Makarios of Australia.

The group of Parliamentarians from overseas are set to arrive in Perth, Western Australia on Thursday, April 11. They will then travel to other cities in Australia including Melbourne, Sydney and Canberra across two weeks.
