They will discuss the bilateral relations of the two neighbouring friends and allies, which are very intensive in numerous areas, including cooperation in the Adriatic Sea and the potential of economic cooperation, it was said.
The two presidents are also expected to discuss the status of the ethnic minorities and current topics on the EU’s agenda, including enlargement.
No statements for the press will be made after the meeting as that is not envisaged by the Italian presidential protocol.
Mattarella officially visited Croatia in April 2015.
