Croatia’s President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović Meets David Cameron

dcCroatia’s President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović has told Britain’s Prime Minister David Cameron that she wants to redefine Croatia’s relationship with the UK…

Grabar-Kitarović and Cameron talked in Bratislava yesterday where they were both attending the GLOBSEC 2015 security forum.

“I told him that I wanted to redefine the relationship with Great Britain, for us to be much more modern, to be partners in dealing with burning issues in the European Union and Southeast Europe. We talked about the security situation in Southeast Europe, but also about the migration issue and what we can do together so that we strengthen both our relations and the EU,” Croatia’s President told journalists.

Grabar-Kitarović used the forum to also speak with Slovakia’s President Andrej Kiska.

“Our wish is to develop tighter Croatia-Slovakia ties. Slovakia can be an example to us, not only of how to come out of the economic crisis, but to really find the right development path. Their current economic growth is 3-4 percent, the average salary is 1,000 euros, and let’s recall where we both were 25 or 30 years ago,” she said.
