Representatives from more than 100 countries will gather in Marrakech, Morocco on Monday and Tuesday for the adoption of the UN Global Compact for safe, orderly and regular migration.
The so-called Marrakesh Agreement will define a catalogue of goals and measures, which in line with national legal frameworks will be applied in cases of regular migration. Representing Croatia at the intergovernmental conference will be Interior Minister Davor Božinović.
"Migration is a global problem and on the long-term it has to be resolved at a global level and within the framework of the United Nations. The compact is just the beginning of that process and it is important to emphasize that our national policies will not change after its confirmation. This means that our police will continue to prevent any attempt to illegally enter into Croatian territory," Božinović said prior to departing for Morocco.
