"In today's organized Croatia, which will preside over the Council of the European Union in the first half of 2020, it is with pride and special piety that we remember every life and every victim that was woven into the fabric of Croatian freedom and that serve as a permanent reminder and roadmap in building and even more organized and more advanced society."

First and foremost her internal stability and the security of her citizens, as well as economic growth and development coupled with employment, legal and social security, social justice, solidarity and inclusion, knowledge and innovation and demographic vitality."
