In the wake of the discussions about that wrong and shameful decision by the Subotica City Council, which were also soon followed by the propaganda film “Dara iz Jasenovca”, more and more threats were made against ethnic Croats, notably ethnic Croat leaders in Serbia, Zvonko Milas told the Sabor, while presenting the 2019 report on the implementation of the strategy pertaining to Croat communities outside Croatia.
He also warned that the Subotica decision on the Bunjevci vernacular was against the Croatia-Serbia bilateral agreement on the respective ethnic minorities and that it also led to the further fragmentation of the ethnic Croat community in Vojvodina and Serbia.
Milas said that Croatia would do its utmost to make sure that Slovenia can grant a status of ethnic minority to local Croats.
The community has more than 50,000 members, Milas said adding that Slovenia does not recognise any ethnic rights of those Croats.
