Archbishop Giuseppe Pinto, papal nuncio to the Philippines, will be moving to Croatia after having served in Manila for six years.

A Vatican communique on June 30 said the Italian prelate will be assigned to the Eastern European country, but did not mention about his likely successor in Manila.

Archbishop Pinto, 65, has served as nuncio to the Philippines since July 2011.

Pope Benedict XVI had appointed Archbishop Pinto as the Philippines' 15th papal representative and the 10th apostolic nuncio to the country.

As papal nuncio, Archbishop Pinto has served in Senegal, Cape Verde, Mali, Guinea-Bissau, Chile, and as apostolic delegate to Mauritania.

He also had previous postings in Papua New Guinea, Argentina, and at the Vatican State secretariat.
