Total Croatia News

ZAGREB, July 25, 2019 – Croatian Prime Minister Andrej Plenković on Wednesday congratulated Boris Johnson on becoming Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, wishing him a lot of success in leading his country in the run-up to the completion of the Brexit process, the prime minister’s office said in a press release.

Expressing hope that under the leadership of the European Commission an agreement on the UK’s exit from the bloc would be reached to the satisfaction of both sides, Plenković said that it was in the interests of citizens to continue building ties between the EU and the UK.

“I am looking forward to continuing our cooperation and strengthening political and economic relations between Croatia and the United Kingdom,” Plenković said in his message.

Johnson took office on Wednesday pledging a new, bold Brexit agreement with the European Union by October 31. He, however, said that if Brussels refused to renegotiate the “divorce” agreement, he would get his country out of the European bloc without a deal.
