Total Croatia News

A Saudi delegation is visiting Croatia.

After Rijeka, where they visited the seaport, and the Plitvice Lakes as a natural phenomenon, the Saudi Arabia’s Advisory Assembly’s delegation, which is officially named the Saudi Arabian-Croatian Friendship Group, visited Vukovar on Tuesday, reports Večernji List on October 4, 2017.

They visited the Town Museum of Vukovar, went on a tour of the Danube River, and were also introduced to the operations of the Port of Vukovar. Along with congratulating Croatia on its progress and describing Croatia’ as their second country, the head of the delegation Abdullah Humud Al Harbey announced that a number of projects are planned to be implemented as part of the Vision 2030 initiative.

“We will also meet with highest government representatives of Croatia. We plan to build a large Islamic museum in Croatia, which will be the biggest such museum in the world. Croatia’s experience can be of great help to us. Croatia is also rich with water resources, so we will also talk about the possibilities of exporting water to Saudi Arabia,” said Abdullah Humud Al Harbey. He thanked the authorities and the Croatian people for protecting the rights of Muslims in the Republic of Croatia.

Ambassador of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to Croatia Hani Abdullah Mominah, who covers Croatia from Bosnia and Herzegovina, said he was deeply convinced in the start of a new phase of economic cooperation between the two countries, which will provide a strong impetus for further development of economic relations.

“The good news in relations between the two states can be expected in the coming days,” the Ambassador said, without providing any further details.

Journalists were also addressed by Member of Croatian Parliament Predrag Matić, who was a host to the group during their four-day tour of Croatia. He pointed out that the two countries currently did not have a particularly well-developed cooperation, so this important Arab country does not have a separate embassy in Croatia.

“Saudi Arabia is a large and a wealthy country. We have shown them the best of us, and I believe that this visit will result in even better cooperation. We have great potential which is interesting to them. Among other things, Croatia can offer them food and water,” said Matić.
