Security for U.S Vice President Visit to Zagreb on Highest Level


There will be nothing left to chance when U.S Vice President Joe Biden visits the Croatian capital Zagreb on Wednesday…

Biden, who will be in town for the Brdo-Brijuni Summit with leaders of South-East European nations, will arrive on board Air Force Two tomorrow morning and there will be nothing spared in the security department whilst he is in town.

According to daily Jutarnji list, Croatian airspace will be closed during the time of Air Force Two and Biden’s arrival. Two Croatian MiG-21 fighters will be up in the air as Air Force Two descends in Zagreb. Members of the FBI are also most likely to be in the control tower at Zagreb airport and follow the landing of the aircraft, as they were when U.S President George W. Bush visited Zagreb in 2008.

Between 4,000 and 5,000 police officers will be engaged in security roles for the visit, including snipers on buildings, whilst the Ministry of Internal Affairs have announced that a number of roads on Biden’s route to Pantovčak, where Croatian President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović will meet him, will be closed tomorrow for parking and a few closed for all traffic.

Those working in the city have been advised to make it to work by 7:30am on Wednesday to avoid major traffic delays.
