New building of Apostolic Nunciature opens in Minsk

A new building of the Apostolic Nunciature opened in Minsk on the eve of the 25th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Belarus and the Holy See.

The embassy is located in a picturesque corner in the center of the capital.

Gabor Pinter, Apostolic Nuncio, representative of the Vatican in Belarus:
Over these 25 years we were able to realize numerous projects, both cultural and religious. One of the results of our cooperation is that Alexander Lukashenko has twice visited the Vatican. We plan, above all, to maintain good relations and develop them - this is the permanent goal of diplomatic relations.

Last week, Minsk again confirmed the status of the capital of inter-confessional consent. The Belarus capital hosted a meeting of the Council of Catholic Bishops' Conferences. Hierarchs from 39 countries discussed in Minsk the problems of the further development of the Catholic world and supported the initiative of the President of Belarus to organize a meeting between the Pope and Patriarch Kirill in Belarus.
