ZAGREB, September 6, 2018 – Croatian President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović visited the Cetingrad Border Police Station in the night between Wednesday and Thursday and after a midnight tour of the border area with Bosnia and Herzegovina, the president said in the village of Buhača she had received assurances that the Croatian police were professional and well equipped.

“My impressions about the border protection are excellent,” the president said after touring the border at the joint international border crossing of Maljevac. She voiced her satisfaction with the good cooperation between the Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina police, praising their prompt reactions in incidents caused by migrant conflicts or in illegal border crossing attempts.

The president herself inspected a section of the border with a thermal imaging camera, used to track movements more efficiently in adverse weather conditions, dense foliage, woodland or various other factors that can contribute towards migrants remaining hidden.

The president said her visit was prompted by numerous complaints by Croatian citizens living in border area, who are worried about an increased number of irregular migrants and who fear for their own safety.

“This is the external border of the EU and the Schengen border and with a quality border monitoring we have proved that we are ready to enter Schengen,” Grabar-Kitarović said.
