Vatican City, 29 October 2012 (VIS) - This morning the Holy Father Benedict XVI received in audience Zoran Milanovic, prime minister of the Republic of Croatia. The prime minister subsequently went on to meet with Cardinal Secretary of State Tarcisio Bertone S.D.B. who was accompanied by Archbishop Dominique Mamberti, secretary for Relations with States.

On this subject, mention was made of a conference to be held this afternoon marking the twentieth anniversary of diplomatic relations.
