The Assembly of the Supreme Religious Council by the honorable
presidency of Garegin II was convened in Holy See St. Echmiadsin
yesterday.

The Assembly touched upon the encroachment upon the Norashen
St. Astvatsatsin Church in Tbilisy and the desecration of the Armenian
graves.

The Supreme Religious Council came out with an appeal: "The Supreme
Religious Council is deeply concerned about the encroachment upon the
Georgian Diocese of the Armenian Apostolic Church and the Armenian
churches.

We condemn all the actions against the Christian spirit, and friendship
between the peoples.

The Supreme Religious Council appeals to the sons of the Armenian
Apostolic Church to assist the Georgian Diocese of the Armenian
Apostolic Church in their efforts to protect the Armenian Churches
and the sacred values."
