In a post on Facebook, the President said that he had said many times that he wanted Croatia to be a united community of all citizens, who may be different but all are equal.

He called for a stronger commitment to promoting equality and building a safe and open society, which includes the right to choice, non-discrimination, and the protection of all minorities, with zero tolerance for violence. 

“That is the only way Croatia can truly be a country of equality,” he said.
