PM Mitsotakis wishes Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew a full and speedy recovery

Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis expressed his warm wishes for the full and speedy recovery of Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew, in a post on social media on Thursday.

Bartholomew was scheduled to return to Istanbul on Wednesday after a 12-day visit to the US, but felt unwell and was hospitalized.

His US visit included a ceremonial blessing and inauguration on Monday of the newly constructed St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church & National Shrine that replaced the original church that was destroyed on 9/11 at the World Trade Center.
