ZAGREB, November 15, 2018 – Croatian President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović met with Serbian Prime Minister Ana Brnabić in Berlin on Tuesday and assessed the meeting as excellent.

Grabar-Kitarović said that during an official dinner given on the occasion of an Economic Summit in Berlin on Tuesday, apart from talks with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, she also had the opportunity to speak with Iceland Prime Minister Katrin Jakobdottir and Serbian Prime Minister Ana Brnabić.

“Our first encounter, I have to say regardless of what anyone will say in Croatia, was excellent. Ana Brnabić is quite concerned with the future of Serbia-Croatia relations and I hope that we will continue in that direction so that we can resolve burning issues in Southeast Europe,” Grabar-Kitarović said.

She added that she had discussed the project of reconstructing the railway tracks between Zagreb and Belgrade with Brnabić.

Grabar-Kitarović mentioned today’s meeting with representatives of German SMEs that account for the major part of Germany’s economy. “We agreed some activities. They are happy to be included in the work of my economic council and I invited them to give us some ideas on how to improve the investment climate,” Grabar-Kitarović said.

The president said that she was in two-minds about the idea of a joint European army that is supported by French President Emmanuel Macron and Chancellor Merkel. “I don’t know what that would look like considering that the majority of EU member states are also NATO members. An I’m afraid of the USA’s reaction,” Grabar-Kitarović said.
