ZAGREB, Croatia — Croatian church and government officials on Friday said Pope Benedict XVI will visit the Roman Catholic bastion in the Balkans for the first time next year.

Zagreb archbishop Cardinal Josip Bozanic said the pope has accepted the country's invitation and will come "most probably in the first half of the next year."

Bozanic said the pontiff is set to stay in the capital of Zagreb for a weekend.

President Ivo Josipovic said the visit will boost the country's bid to join the European Union.
