In light of Victory and Homeland Thanksgiving Day and Veterans Day on Sunday, President Kolinda Grabar Kitarović, Prime Minister Andrej Plenković and Parliament Speaker Gordan Jandroković issued their greetings to all Croatian citizens.

"Let us build our beautiful homeland together, through solidarity and respect for one another. So that from day to day she is even more developed and even more just. The way previous generations dreamt she would be and the kind our veterans and defenders wanted her to be," the president said in her greeting.

The prime minister noted that the sacrifice of the Homeland War served as a strong guide in building a better future. "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."

The parliament speaker reminded all Croatians that nurturing the values of the Homeland War was a key component to achieving a better life for all Croatian citizens. "Today, 24 years after our victory, it is our obligation to nurture the values of the Homeland War through the all-encompassing development of our homeland. 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."
