ZAGREB, May 24, 2018 – Croatian President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović met with US Attorney General Jeff Sessions in Zagreb on Thursday, the President’s Office said in a press release.

They discussed possibilities of further strengthening the good relationship between the two allies. Concluding an agreement on avoidance of double taxation and including Croatia in the US visa waiver programme could contribute to that, the press release said.

Sessions confirmed that the US shared an interest in Southeast Europe and agreed with Grabar-Kitarović on the importance of permanent US support for the European and Euro-Atlantic future of this region.

Sessions spoke of his participation in a workshop on transnational organised crime earlier in the day, and the two officials exchanged views on the political and security situation in Southeast Europe, sharing the views on a number of threats and on the importance of continuous open dialogue and cooperation between relevant institutions and services in Southeast Europe and with those in the EU and the US.

Grabar-Kitarović informed her guest about the strategic importance of a future LNG terminal on the island of Krk, which should contribute to energy diversification of Central Europe and strengthening the European cohesion and energy security, the press release said.
