On 22nd March 2008, His Beatitude Theodoros II, Pope and Patriarch of Alexandria and All Africa communicated telephonically with His Beatitude Chrysostomos Archbishop of New Justinia and All Cyprus, to once again express his fervent thanks for the kind and filial welcome and hospitality afforded him during his recently completed conciliatory visit to the Church of Cyprus.

     The two Primates discussed the new details regarding the creation of an Exarchate of the Apostolic and Patriarchal Throne of St Mark at the Church of Cyprus, so that the people could receive information regarding the missionary work being done among the people of the African continent.
