Amman, May 29 (Petra) -- His Majesty King Abdullah II, Sunday, received His Eminence Metropolitan, Anba Antonious, on the occasion of his enthronement on the seat as the Coptic Metropolitan of Jerusalem and Jordan.

At the meeting, attended by HRH Prince Ghazi bin Muhammad, Chief Advisor to HM King Abdullah for Religious and Cultural Affairs and the King’s Personal Envoy, King Abdullah congratulated the Metropolitan on his appointment to the post and wished him success in promoting dialogue and understanding among followers of different religions.
