As far as a visit by Russian President Vladimir Putin to Croatia is concerned Asimov said that he received the invitation. “Sooner or later he will come, but the visit has to be well prepared and there needs to be a special occasion, content or package of agreements. We are working on three possible proposals, one is the opening of a Russian Cultural Centre in Croatia and a Croatian one in Moscow. We need to prepare the visit well and when everything is ready, the president will gladly accept the invitation to visit your beautiful country,” said Anvar Asimov.
