ZAGREB, February 12, 2018 – Visiting Serbian President Aleksandar Vučić said at a news conference at Croatian President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović’s office in Zagreb on Monday that he would do his best to help find the war missing.

Vučić arrived in Croatia for a two-day official visit on Monday morning. The programme of his visit started with his talks with the Croatian president, which lasted longer than expected.

Opening the news conference, President Grabar-Kitarović said that she and the Serbian president raised many questions during the talks. “We did not agree on many things, and we brought our positions closer on some. It is extremely important that we agreed to continue our talks,” she said.

Vučić said that he had noticed protests against his visit but that they did not bother him. Speaking about the missing persons issue, Vučić said that he had provided the Croatian authorities with documents on three persons missing from the 1991-1995 war in Croatia. “We have the names of three persons for whom we know where they were killed,” Vučić told a joint press conference with his host, President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović. He did not give their identities, the place where they were killed or their ethnic background.

The Serbian president also gave back to Croatian authorities documents from Dvor na Uni, a Croatian town on the border with Bosnia and Herzegovina, which were taken to Serbia after the Croatian military and police operation “Storm” in 1995.

Vučić brought to Zagreb registers of births, marriages and deaths from that majority Serb municipality in Croatia’s Banovina region.

Croatia has been seeking from Serbia for years the restitution of its cultural goods, stolen and taken to Serbia at the time of the Croatian military operation in the summer of 1995 in which areas controlled by Croatian Serb rebels were liberated.
