The Holy Synod on Tuesday expressed deep concern over reports regarding the reunification talks and asked to be briefed by the president.
In a written announcement, the Church said the Holy Synod convened in an extraordinary meeting on Tuesday to discuss developments in the Cyprus problem.
“Following a thorough discussion, all members of the Holy Synod expressed their deepest concern over what is seeing the public light regarding the forthcoming new round of talks in Geneva from January 9 to 12,” the statement said.
The synod decided that its head, Archbishop Chrysostomos, should request President Nicos Anastasiades to appear before it and brief its members about the developments and also answer any questions.
The Holy Synod also decided to invite other politicians to hear their view in a bid to have a full picture of the issue before it took a stance.
