Jerusalem and Romania restore communion

Some background: The Romanian Church built a church in Jericho without permission from the Jerusalem Patriarchate and the issue came to a head in 2011. The Romanian Church has done this elsewhere (e.g. a similar thing was done within the borders of Ukraine). Now that Jerusalem has resolved their issues with Romania it is time for them to resolve their strained relationship with Antioch over Qatar.

(Jerusalem Patriarchate) - The Patriarchate of Jerusalem is happy to inform the followers of its official website that today, Monday the 21st of January/3rd of February 2014, an agreement was signed to restore the ecclesiastical communion between the Patriarchate of Jerusalem and the Patriarchate of Romania. Further details on this issue will be posted within the day.
