    Background: Archbishop Luigi Poggi, one of the Vatican's most experienced diplomats, began a 10-day official visit to Poland on February 6 aimed at exploring the possible exchange of ambassadors between Warsaw and the Holy See. On February 10, Poland's Foreign Minister Stefan Olszowski received the Vatican envoy for talks about "the constant development of relations" and increasing mutual "efforts for preserving and consolidating peace". Shortly after his arrival in Poland, Poggi repeated a demand by the country's Catholic hierarchy that the government enact a law defining the church's legal status prior to the establishment of ambassadorial-level relations. Western observers have indicated that the Polish Communist Party's attempt to upgrade its Vatican contacts by welcoming a papal nuncio (Vatican ambassador) would be interpreted as an effort to brighten Warsaw's tarnished international image.
