Croatian Parliament Speaker receives newly-appointed US ambassador

Zagreb - Croatian Parliament Speaker Gordan Jandroković received newly appointed U.S. ambassador to Croatia W. Robert Kohorst on Wednesday.

Jandroković and Kohorst reaffirmed the high level of bilateral relations and cooperation between Croatia and the United States and expressed a wish to step up cooperation in all areas of common interest.

The two officials also underscored the importance of increasing security and stability in Southeast Europe. In that context, Jandroković underscored Croatia's support for Bosnia and Herzegovina's European membership prospects. He said Croatia would continue to support the Croats in Bosnia and Herzegovina, adding that their status must be equal to that of the other two constituent peoples in the country.

The talks also focused on the strengthening of economic relations, energy supply diversification, and the future LNG terminal on the northern Croatian island of Krk. Jandroković expressed hope that the issue of the visa regime would be resolved in the near future. (Hina)
