PM Plenkovic visits Dubrovnik on Veterans Day
Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic visited Dubrovnik on Tuesday to mark the Dubrovnik Veterans Day, and on that occasion laid a wreath and lit a candle at the cross on Srdj hill above the city in memory of defenders killed in the Homeland War and later met with veterans associations.
Plenkovic underscored that Dubrovnik's veterans defended the city, southern Croatia and Croatian freedom during the most difficult times in 1991.
"A few days ago we adopted a new law in parliament on veterans rights. I believe that is a very strong and very firm message from the government that we want to regulate all rights in a comprehensive, long-term and financially sustainable way. With it, we sent a message about the dignity of the Homeland War and lasting respect for those who gave the most for Croatia," he said.
He later met with County Prefect Nikola Dobroslavic and Mayor Mato Frankovic and other mayors in the county to discuss development of southern Croatia and discussed key development projects and better transport connectivity by resolving the issues of the border crossing and the Peljesac Bridge.
