ZAGREB, June 8, 2019 – US Ambassador William R. Kohorst on Friday handed over rescue equipment to Croatia’s Civil Protection Directorate worth 170,000 dollars, as a donation from the US European Command.

The donation is yet another example of the excellent US-Croatia cooperation and it is especially important because this is humanitarian equipment that will help in providing security for Croatian citizens, Kohorst said.

Thanking the US ambassador for the donation, Minister of the Interior Davor Božinović said that the cooperation between the two countries was traditionally good and was being constantly advanced.

Civil protection is an area with great potential in the US-Croatia cooperation. The newly donated equipment is very valuable and builds on previous donations. The newly donated sensors for search and rescue operations in collapsed structures are state-of-the-art equipment for which we are very grateful to the USA, Božinović said.
