Milanović welcomed Macron with the highest state honors.
The Croatian Armed Forces orchestra played the two countries’ national anthems. Also present was the Honorary and Protection Battalion.
After the welcoming ceremony, the two presidents went to a tête-à-tête meeting.
Macron will then lay a wreath at the Homeland Monument in Stjepan Radić Square. He expressed the wish to pay his respects to those killed in the 1991-95 Homeland War and will be the first high guest to do so at the new Zagreb memorial.
After that, Macron is going to the government.
