Orthodox-Catholic dialogue in Russia developing slowly - Moscow Patriarchate

Moscow Patriarchate sees no particular progress in the development of the Orthodox-Catholic dialogue.

"In my view, today the Orthodox-Catholic dialogue is going slowly, just as in previous years," Moscow Patriarchate spokesman Rev. Vladimir Vigilyansky told journalists at a seminar at Moscow Carnegie Center.

The main reason for this is the outstanding issues between the Vatican and the Russian Orthodox Church, which still prevent a meeting between Pope Benedict XVI and Patriarch Alexy II of Moscow and All Russia.
