The terrorist group “Islamic State” is guilty of the genocide of Christians, US Vice President Mike Pence said at the World Summit in Support of Persecuted Christians on Thursday.

“I believe that IS is guilty of the genocide of Christians. It’s time to call things by their proper names”, he said.

The summit in defense of persecuted Christians in Washington is organized by the Evangelical Association of Billy Graham. About 600 representatives of the clergy and religious organizations from around the world take part in it. The Russian Orthodox Church is represented there by Metropolitan Hilarion Alfeyev, Chairman of the Department for External Church Relations.
