    Background: A number of senior Greek Orthodox Church leaders, including the Archbishop of Athens airport, Dec 26, to greet Patriarch of Moscow Alexei - the head of the Russian Orthodox Church - on his arrival in Greece for talks with church leaders.

    Patriarch Alexei, who is on a tour of the Middle East, was to have attended the Pan-Orthodox Council in Rhodes. It was cancelled as the man who called the meeting, the Patriarch of Istanbul, was unable to leave Turkey.

    Observers feel the topics in the present discussions will include closer contacts between the Russian clergy and other Orthodox countries. The question of sending more Russians monks to the Russian Monasteries on Mount Athos may also be raised.
