Zagreb - Croatian Parliament Speaker Josip Leko on Wednesday received representatives of the Bosnian Croat association "Prsten" who informed him of the association's activities.
"Prsten" president Ivan Lovrinovic said the association was founded because its members were confident that Croatia needed to have a stronger initiative towards Bosnian Croats, primarily to stop their further emigration and enable sustainable life in Bosnia.
The association's representatives told Leko it was necessary to better inform Bosnian Croats about the consequences of Croatia's EU entry, notably when it came to the future border-crossing regime and the implementation of the law on the place of residence.
"Prsten" is a nonpolitical, nonprofit organisation in Croatia for the promotion and protection of tradition, culture, economic cooperation and humanitarian activities of Croats in Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina, so as to preserve fundamental values and unity of the Croat people and its prosperity. The association was founded in 2005.
