Speaker of the Croatian Parliament participated at the Conference "Comprehensive regional defence ministerial"

Dubrovnik - The "Comprehensive regional defence ministerial – CRM" is hosted in 2015 by the Republic of Croatia and it takes place in Dubrovnik on 21-22 October.

The meeting  of the defence ministers  was also addressed by Parliament Speaker Josip Leko who said that the issue of refugees was assuming worrisome proportions which was why efforts of all countries wanting to join NATO needed to be supported.

"Croatia is a member of NATO, it gained a lot with the membership. The effects of the membership are not visible in everyday life of our citizens, but we are aware that NATO is still the most credible alliance in the world, it is an alliance of values which we advocate as well. By joining NATO, Croatia has permanently resolved its strategic issue of security and definitely secured its border", Leko said.

The Comprehensive regional ministerial entails ministerial and defence policy officials of three regional initiatives – the U.S. Adriatic Charter (A-5), the South East Defence Ministerial Initiative and the Western Balkans Defence Policy Directors (WBDPD).

8 October – Croatia’s Independence Day

Independence Day is a public holiday in Croatia marked on 8 October. On 8 October 1991 Croatian Parliament unanimously reached a Decision on dissolution of all state and legal ties with other republics and provinces of Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia.

Croatian Parliament acknowledged that the Republic of Croatia considered no body representing Yugoslavia neither legitimate nor legal and did not recognize any legal act representing former federation. On 25 June 1991 Croatian Parliament enacted a Constitutional decision on independence and sovereignty.

The Decision on dissolution of all state and legal ties with other republics and provinces of Yugoslavia was enacted by the Croatian Parliament in the shelter of INA building, and not in its building on Saint Marcus Square which the Parliament has been using for over 250 years, since a day earlier, on 7 October, the Yugoslav Air Force attacked the historic centre of Zagreb and Banski dvori, the official residence of the President of Croatia and Government of the time.
