On the afternoon of 28 July 2005 there was a meeting held at
the request of the Armenian Patriarchate between His All Holiness
Bartholomew I, Istanbul Greek Orthodox Patriarch, and His Beatitude
Mesrob II, Armenian Patriarch of Istanbul and All Turkey. The meeting
was held in the Greek Patriarchate at Fener.

His Beatitude the Patriarch conveyed the news that he had received
a letter from His Holiness Catholicos Karekin II of All Armenians,
who was invited to Istanbul by Patriarch Bartholomew, and was waiting
for a date to be named by the Armenian and Greek Patriarchates for
the Istanbul visit.

Following an inspection of the 2006 Greek and Armenian church
calendars, it was decided to reach a common date within one week.

His All Holiness Patriarch Bartholomew informed that he would preside
over the Divine Liturgy on Friday morning at Holy Transfiguration
Greek Orthodox Monastery on Kinali Island and open the summer camp
as they do each year for Greek Orthodox children. He invited His
Beatitude the Patriarch to the ceremonies.
