Anglican/Orthodox relations

I am very excited about Metropolitan Jonah's speech at the Anglican Church in North America (ACNA) Assembly recently. His speech, which I haven't listened to, is on the Orthodixie blog. I don't agree with everything he says, but let's say at least 95%. It's exciting to have a presiding bishop that is not insular, and that seeks to speak of the ecumenical and evangelical nature of the Church; while at the same time holding to unchangeable truth and witness of our communion. Too much is at stake for the Orthodox Church, especially in a Western country like the United States, to continue in a sort of oriental parochialism. Does this conflict with the Ecumenical Patriarch's ecumenical efforts? I am also curious about his relationship with the Roman Catholic Church (RCC) - more later on what he supposedly said about such relations in another blog that I read. Interesting.
