“The process has been good so far. It hasn’t been compromised, there have been no information leaks. Eventually, the cost will have to be presented to the Croatian public,” Milanović told the press.
He said it was important that Croatia had the fighter jets by no later than 2024. “They have to be here by then,” Milanović said, adding that Croatia should not be without its own resources even for a day.
Milanović said that this was a major project and that he hoped the government would take a decision on it before Armed Forces Day, which is observed on 28 May.
