A dispute between the leaders of the Orthodox Churches in Armenia and Georgia is apparently no closer to a resolution, after several days of talks about the issues.

From the article:
(Catholicos-Patriarch) Ilia insisted that the Armenian Church should gain official recognition in Georgia only if the Georgian Church is granted the same status in Armenia. (Catholicos) Karekin II countered that Armenia’s small ethnic Georgian community, numbering less than 1,000 people, never applied for such a status. He argued that Armenian law provides for the easy registration of religious minorities.

(Clergy titles are in parenthesis because I added them to the excerpt for clarity.)
