The Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov claimed about preparation of the second conference on defence of Christians in the world.

'Apart from demonstrating personal example on how important, as we believe, is to build relations among various religions, it is necessary to carry out special events. To tell the truth, today Christians are subject to very serious persecutions in the Middle East and first of all in Syria and Iraq. Their numbers in these countries have drastically dropped,' the Minister noted.

According to him, exodus of the Christians from the region, where Christianity arouse, 'would be a colossal strike against the whole history, spiritual side of not only the Holy Land, but the whole of the Middle East.'

'Thus, along with the Imperial Orthodox Palestine Society, our government organizations actively use international structures to draw attention to this urgent problem,' Lavrov added.

The first conference was held a year and a half ago in Geneva. Representatives of Vatican, Russia, Armenia, as well as Lebanon, took part in it.

For the latest some dozens of years the state of Christians in Muslim countries of the Middle East cannot be called as a safe one.
