The annual meeting between the Croatian Prime Minister and the Croatian General's Assembly, a college of retired Croatian Generals, was held on Tuesday.
Prime Minister Andrej Plenković received the Croatian General’s Assembly at the seat of government in Banski Dvori on Saint Mark’s Square on Tuesday. Also present were the Interior Minister Davor Božinović, Veteran’s Affairs Minister Tomo Medved and Justice Minister Dražen Bošnjaković. The focus of discussion was on the situation in the region.
The Croatian General’s Assembly, comprised of Croatian generals that led Croatia’s defenses in the Homeland War, expressed its concern that Croatia is being subjected to a virtual attack from some of its neighbors to the east, more specifically, Serbia.
Speaking after the meeting Veteran's Affairs Minister Medved noted that the prime minister had succeeded in assuaging the general’s concerns. "They gave their full support to the government in implementing its program. Obviously we touched on security issues, primarily with regards to our immediate surroundings."
"We were interested in exactly what the minister mentioned, to see how the security situation is being handled, because as you know, Croatia is being exposed to what I would call a special or virtual war from some countries, especially those to the east." Concluded the president of the assembly, retired General Pavao Miljavac.
