Archbishop of America Spyridon yesterday called on all political and religious leaders in the United States to express their support for the Ecumenical Patriarchate's Halki School of Theology.
The Archbishop wrote to US President Bill Clinton and US Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, noting that the Turkish government, using summary procedures, deposed the governing board of the school.
Assistant US Secretary of State Mark Grossman assured Spyridon that he will use all available resources to solve the problem.
