NOTE ON APPOINTMENT OF APOSTOLIC DELEGATE TO KOSOVO

VATICAN CITY, 10 FEB 2011 (VIS) - Given below is the text of a note released by the Holy See Press Office this morning, concerning today's appointment of the new nuncio to Slovenia, who also exercises the function of apostolic delegate to Kosovo:

  "It should be pointed out", the note reads, "that the appointment of an apostolic delegate falls within the organisational functions of the structure of the Catholic Church and hence has a purely intra-ecclesial character, being completely distinct from considerations regarding juridical and territorial situations or any other question inherent to the diplomatic activity of the Holy See. The mission of an apostolic delegate is not of a diplomatic nature but responds to the requirement to meet in an adequate way the pastoral needs of the Catholic faithful".
