Archbishop Aram Atesyan to visit Armenia

Archbishop Aram Ateshyan, General Vicar of the Armenian Patriarch of Turkey Aram Atesyan will leave for Russia today, according to the website of the Armenian Patriarchate of Istanbul.

Archbishop Atesyan will later arrive in Armenia to participate in the sitting of the Supreme Religious Council and the events organized on the occasion of the Pope’s visit.

The Acting Patriarch stirred a major controversy among Armenians worldwide, including the Armenian community of Turkey, as he sent a highly controversial letter last week to Turkish President Recep Erdogan, criticizing the German Parliament’s decision to recognize the Armenian Genocide.
