Croatia marked the tenth anniversary of its membership of NATO in Brussels on Friday. Croatia officially joined the alliance on April 1st 2009.
Prime Minister Andrej Plenković was on hand in Brussels to commemorate the milestone of Croatia’s first decade in the NATO alliance. On the occasion he met with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg.
“I am glad that we have emancipated ourselves, and that for ten years now we have been a reliable partner, that we are participating in a political context but also in defense, as we are involved in a number of NATO operations, from Afghanistan, KFOR in Kosovo, our involvement in Iraq and our recent activities in Poland and Lithuania, this shows that Croatia, with all of its experience, is capable of being inter-operable and of participating in varying activities in the Euro-Atlantic area, but also in those missions that focus on establishing peace and stabilizing the situation in post-conflict areas throughout the world,” the prime minister said after their meeting.
