US envoy for Holy See

FULL DIPLOMATIC relations have been established between the Holy See and the United States. The Vatican Press Office announced on Tuesday that the

apostolic delegation in Washington would be raised to the level of Nunciature and President Reagan's percona) envoy will be replaced by an ambassador.

Full relations may assist the Vatican in its attempts to mediate between the United States and the USSR to avoid a nuclear conflict.

Shortly afterwards the White House named Mr William Wilson, who has been President Reagan's personal envoy since 1981, as American Ambassador. The Vatican's Apostolic Delegate to the US, Archbishop Pio Laghi, is to become the ProNuncio to Washington.

In establishing relations with the Vatican after 116 years of unofficial ties, the Reagan administration has brushed aside objections from Protestant Churches and libertarians that this would violate the constitutional principle of separation of Church and State.
