Japanese Prince In Croatia: Your Support During Quake Strengthened Our Ties

Prince and Princess Akashino of Japan have met with Croatian Prime Minister Zoran Milanovic and Parliament President Josip Leko in Zagreb on Thursday as part of their 4-day official visit to celebrate 20 years of diplomatic relations between the two countries.

Speaking in a stifling hot Croatian capital on Thursday, Prince Akashino was quick to praise Croatians for their help after the devastating earthquake and tsunami rocked the nation 2 years ago.

“I know Croatia invited the kids from Sendai for a holiday then, that strengthened our relationship,” said the Prince at a mass at Zagreb’s cathedral, adding that because of Croatia’s experience with war victims, they showed a great understanding for the victims of the Japanese earthquake. The Prince and his wife will remain in Croatia until Sunday.
