Moscow was visited by an official delegation from its Icelandic sister city- Reykjavik. The delegation was headed by its mayor, Vilhjalmur Vilhjalmsson. There was a reception in honor of this visit at the embassy of Iceland. Addressing the guests, the mayor of Icelands capital expressed satisfaction with his meetings with his Moscow colleague, Yuri Luzhkov, and with the documents on cooperation and exchange of experience in economic, social and cultural spheres that were signed during the meeting. He also stated that the Moscow Patriarchys parish in Reykjavik will be allocated some land for the construction of an Orthodox church, the Church of St. Nicholas.
