From left to right: Syriac Orthodox Patriarch Mor Ignatius Yaqub (Jacob) III, Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser, Coptic Orthodox Pope Kyrillos (Cyril) VI, and the late HIM Emperor Haile Selassie of Ethiopia.



I really like this photo. Shame about the poor quality, though.

Probably shortly before 1970. I don't know the exact date, sorry.

I agree, about Pope St. Cyril, though. :)

It is indeed in Romania, but I didn't see anywhere on the site which specifies where or what particular church. He also has this image though:
