Giorgi Kvirikashvili: “Georgia has faced many serious challenges, during which our church played a significant role” Georgia has faced many serious challenges, during which our church played a significant role and the Patriarch’s contribution to our motherland is unavailable for the 40 years he has been leading our Church, - Prime Minister Giorgi Kvirikashvili stated at the International Conference on Religion and Public Life.

According to him, the wisdom and love of the Patriarch is greatly respected by people of different religions and nationalities not only in Georgia, but in the whole world.

"As you know, Georgia has been in serious troubles many times, during which, our church, high priests and patriarchs have played an outstanding role. Catholicos Patriarch Ilia II, our spiritual father, who has been the head of the Georgian Church for 40 years and whose merits are invaluable, has played a particular role. His wisdom and love is greatly respected by people of different religions and nationalities not only in Georgia, but in the whole world. It is due to His Holiness that Georgia has preserved and strengthened the historical tradition of tolerance, which leads to respect for different religions and peaceful coexistence of representatives of various religions in society. I am sure today's conference will be interesting. There will be an in-depth discussion of the most important and topical issues, such as the relationship between the religion and society," Kvirikashvili said.

According to him, it is welcome that a truly representative international conference is dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the restoration of the autocephaly of the Georgian Church.

He also said that historical justice was restored by restoration of the independence of Georgian Church in 1917.

"We have passed a really rich history and respect for this history is the debt of all of us,"- said the Prime Minister.
