PM Tells New York Croats He is Not Looking for Votes

Croatian Prime Minister Zoran Milanovic, who is in New York participating in a session of the General Assembly of the United Nations, has met with the New York’s Croatian community.

Milanovic stated to the Croatian contingent that he was not there to give a promotional speech, but that meeting Croatian citizens was a fundamental of his job.

“You must know, as it is very important, that when we go outside of Croatia we do not go looking for votes, especially when I go to Bosnia and Herzegovina, the trips are not calculated, it is not just work but an emotional thing,” said Milanovic at the start of his meeting with the New York Croats.

Milanovic assured those who turned up to meet him that he was working hard to get Croatia on the right track and that his government would need at least two or three mandates to get things going in the right direction.
