Parliament Speaker issues Victory and Homeland Thanksgiving Day message

Zagreb - Parliament Speaker Gordan Jandroković on Sunday issued a message on the occasion of Victory and Homeland Thanksgiving Day and Croatian Veterans Day, stressing that 24 years since the victory in the 1991-95 war, Croatians had the obligation to promote Homeland War values by strengthening the overall development of their homeland.

"This primarily refers to the country's internal stability and the safety of its citizens, economic growth and development, employment, legal and social security, social equity, solidarity and inclusiveness, competence and demographic vitality," Jandroković said in the message, expressing gratitude to Croatian veterans for having defended the freedom of their people.

Jandroković also called for ensuring educational, economic and other opportunities for young people so that they can stay in Croatia.
