“Our position is very clear. We will continue developing allied relations with the United States” he said on Wednesday morning.

“Croatia and the USA are allies in NATO. We will continue advocating firm Trans-Atlantic relations. This is important for Croatia, this is important for our foreign policy priorities and for the southeast of Europe. NATO’s role has always been crucial for the architecture of peace in Europe,” Stier added.
