Audience at the Serbian Patriarchate – 16 April 2016

His Holiness Irinej, Serbian Patriarch, received Dr. Mladen Ivanic, member of the Presidency of Bosnia and Herzegovina, at the Serbian Patriarchate in Belgrade on 16 April 2016.

In a cordial conversation Mr. Ivanic informed His Holiness on the situation in Bosna and Herzegovina, as well as on efforts to improve a quality of life of the people in this region. The Serbian Orthodox Church plays a significant role in the life of its believers around the world, so on this occasion Mr. Ivanic gave an official suggestion to His Holiness to establish a commission of the Serbian Orthodox Church which would closely cooperate with governing structures on the territory of Bosnia and Herzegovina and Republic of Srpska (photo: archive www.spc.rs).
