Vienna – Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee Mr. Miro Kovač, Chairman of the Defence Committee Mr. Igor Dragovan and Deputy Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee Mr. Joško Klisović participated at the two-day Conference for the EU's Common Foreign and Security Policy and the Common Security and Defence Policy (CFSP/CSDP), organized within the scope of the Austrian Presidency of the Council of the European Union.

The Conference was dedicated to EU’s priorities in the field of CFSP and CSDP, the situation and control at EU borders, the issues of security and migration, the current state of affairs in the countries of the Middle East, the security situation in Syria and the European perspective of the Western Balkans countries. During the Conference workshops were held on the future of the nuclear deal, the military mobility within the Union and projects within the framework of the Permanent Structured Cooperation – PESCO, as well as on the contribution of the OSCE to the East-West dialogue. The participants exchanged views on the current state of the Union, its immediate neighbourhood and control of its borders and welcomed the efforts undertaken so far with regard to calming the situation in and stabilizing EU’s neighbourhood, with particular emphasis on the importance of further strengthening the European defence.

The Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee Kovač spoke about security issues, migration and control of borders and stressed that total monitoring of migration is not possible, pointing out at the necessity to define a common European approach to migration management. In this area, as well as in Southeast Europe, the European Union can and must demonstrate its efficiency and if it fails to do so, it is not eligible to claim the role of a world player, Kovač added.

Croatia observing Independence Day - October 8th

photo: Hina/Tomislav KuhtićCroatia is observing Independence Day on Monday in memory of 8 October 1991 when the first Croatian legislative assembly decided to sever all ties with the then Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (SFRY).

Twenty eight years ago, the first Sabor made that decision in dramatic circumstances, after it had to be relocated from the parliament headquarters in St. Mark's Square in Zagreb's historical centre due to an air-strike by SFRY army planes on the residence of the first Croatian President Franjo Tuđman opposite the parliament on 7 October 1991. During the air-strike, which was an attempt on Tuđman's life, one person was killed and four were wounded and buildings in St. Mark's Square were damaged.

The lawmakers, relocated to the INA building in Subiceva Street, downtown Zagreb, on 8 October 1991 made the historic decision on exiting the Yugoslav federation. The decision was adopted after the expiry of a three-month moratorium on the implementation of Croatia's Independence Declaration, adopted by the parliament on 25 June 1991. Croatia's parliament adopted the declaration of independence and launched the procedure for disassociation from the other SFRY republics. That same day Slovenia, too, declared its sovereignty and independence from the former Yugoslavia.

With mediation from the international community, in order to facilitate negotiations on disassociation from the former Yugoslavia, the Brijuni Declaration was adopted, establishing that the enforcement of the 25 June 1991 constitutional decision should be postponed for three months. When the moratorium expired on 8 October 1991, Croatia severed all ties with the other Yugoslav republics, becoming a free democracy. October 8 is observed as Independence Day, and June 25 is observed as Statehood Day. (Hina)
