“Zagreb reacted angrily at Vucic’s comment that ‘Hitler wanted the world free of Jews and Croatia’s policy wanted Croatia without the Serbs,’ saying the relations with Belgrade would be frosty and that the President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic would not visit Belgrade anytime soon.

‘Whenever they (Croatia’s officials) want to come, they are welcome. If they don’t want, they don’t have to,’ Vucic said.

Referring to his speech in the northern town of Backa Palanka, Vucic said he could have said more had he knew what would happen on Sunday during Croatia’s central celebration and during the concert of a controversial singer nick-named Thompson who hailed the audience with a notorious (Croatia’s WW II Nazi puppet state armed force) Ustashas’ ‘For the Homeland, Ready’ salute.” (N1)
