President and Prime Minister agree NATO values not to be taken for granted
photo: HinaZagreb - Common values that NATO member countries share like peace and security, respect of human rights and democracy must not be taken for granted, President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic and Prime Minister Zoran Milanovic agreed in their addresses to the parliament on the occasion of the sixth anniversary of Croatia's accession to NATO.

Milanovic said that NATO functions like a club of countries that have some common aspects and that had their ups and downs with regard to democracy, human rights, a right to be different - the things that we nurture in Croatia today.

-We must never forget that it was a hard struggle and that it can all be lost with the bat of an eyelid, which is why it is important to promote those values and what we teach our children, Milanovic underscored.

-My message is that we must never take that for granted, we fought for that, people were killed, human rights were something that was dreamt about and something that people went to jail for. Milanovic said that Croatian politicians today are the first generation of politicians who in the new, modern Croatia are not faced with such things. -When we understand that, we will realise that those who go under Muhammad's or anyone else's flag, who are prepared to sacrifice their lives and the lives of others for a cause that is incomprehensible to us, that they too are human beings and that it is necessary to find a way to approach them.

President Grabar-Kitarovic, who is a former assistant to NATO's secretary-general, stressed in her address that peace and stability are not achieved only by weapons. -Peace and stability cannot be achieved only with weapons, they cannot be achieved only with rifles and arms.- They are achieved through dedicated work and with one's heart, she said, adding that members of Croatia's contingent in NATO operations have that in them.
