Russia to defend all Christians of the world

The Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov claimed about preparation of the second conference on defense 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.
