Completing its official re-entry into Eastern European countries with major Roman Catholic populations, the Vatican on Tuesday announced resumption of diplomatic relations with Romania. A terse one-paragraph announcement ended a 40-year rupture begun with the triumph of communism in Romania after World War II. Relations will be resumed at full ambassadorial level, the Vatican said, without naming the envoys to be exchanged.

Father John Bukovsky was named apostolic nuncio in Bucharest, a move made possible after diplomatic relations were re-established between the Holy See and Romania three months ago. The Pope elevated Bukovsky, 66, to the rank of archbishop.

The Vatican and Romania have decided to re-establish diplomatic relations after a 40-year break, the Vatican said Monday. No date was given, but papal spokesman Joaquin Navarro said it will be soon. Romanian officials said in Bucharest that ties will be restored in mid-May. The fall of the hard-line Communist regimes in Central Europe over the last year has allowed the Vatican to expand its influence in the region.
