Speaking after Monday’s central celebrations in Knin, Prime Minister Andrej Plenković said that the state leadership had jointly sent a message of peace and solidarity and that Croatia would not enjoy the freedom and democracy it has today without the sacrifice of Croatian veterans. As such he concluded, caring for their well-being and improving their position in Croatian society is one of his government’s key obligations.

Prime Minister Plenković also said that Croatia’s upcoming presidency over the Council of the European Union would be dedicated to Croatian veterans, their families and the victims of the Serbian aggression.
