Prime Minister Andrej Plenković said on Monday Deputy PM Boris Milošević would be in the Remembrance Day procession in Vukovar on Wednesday and that this was an important message in line with the government's policy of reconciliation and looking to the future.
Speaking to the press, Plenković said he would be joined in the procession by Milošević of the Independent Democratic Serb Party (SDSS), Deputy PM Tomo Medved, and ministers Nataša Tramišak, Mario Banožić and Josip Aladrović.
Ministers Gordan Grlić Radman, Marija Vučković and Ivan Malenica will go to the commemoration in Škabrnja.
Plenković said Milošević's going to Vukovar was a very important message of honouring the victims of Vukovar and the Homeland War. "I think it is in line with our policy, the policy of reconciliation, looking to the future, coexistence."
He recalled that Milošević came to Knin in August on the occasion of Victory and Homeland Thanksgiving Day, while Medved went to Grubori and he to Varivode.
Plenković said the presence of the Deputy PM in Vukovar would bring full circle "gestures which are important, valuable, essential for Croatia in the fourth decade of its democracy, respecting the Homeland War, remembering the sacrifice of Croatian defenders, notably those who gave their lives in Vukovar, Škabrnja and other parts of Croatia.
