New UK embassy building to reinforce relationship with Holy See.
UK minister for Europe, Leo Docherty, on Thursday opened new offices of the British embassy to the Holy See, together with Archbishop Paul Richard Gallagher, the Vatican's secretary for relations with states.
“These new UK offices, close to the heart of the Vatican, are a powerful and physical reminder of the strength of our relationship with the Holy See, and of our desire to work together even more closely on the global challenges of our time", Docherty said in a statement.
