The Vatican and Poland will announce they are resuming formal diplomatic relations during Pope John Paul II's visit to his native country next month, the Rome weekly Expresso reported. Citing unidentified Roman Catholic Church sources, it said the Pope has chosen Hungarian-born Archbishop Lajos Kada, 63, a career Vatican diplomat, as the envoy to Warsaw. However, Vatican officials said that an agreement to resume diplomatic ties, broken off after the Communists took power in Poland in 1945, is not likely to come during the papal visit. They indicated that some differences need to be ironed out.
