“Croatian President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic on Friday told the Bosnian edition of the Vecernji List daily that Croatia would do everything to prevent the entry of migrants from Bosnia and Herzegovina and announced support to Bosnian authorities in dealing with this problem.

;Croatia will do everything to protect its border and prevent any attempts at crossing the border illegally, and has all the necessary resources to do that. We are prepared to assist Bosnia and Herzegovina in that regard,’ Grabar-Kitarovic said.

She added that Croatia would deploy police officers through the EU border control agency Frontex to control the border at the Mali Zvornik border crossing between Bosnia and Serbia.

She added that the authorities in Zagreb were carefully monitoring the increased influx of migrants on the new route across Bosnia and Herzegovina and their attempts to get to EU countries by travelling through Croatia. (N1)

“Right to life activists marched in three major Croatian cities today. The annual Walk for Life was held in Zagreb, Split, and Rijeka. The biggest turnout was in Zagreb, with around 10 thousand people taking part in the event.

The marches were organized by the In the Name of the Family group, which is campaigning to ban abortion. Željka Markić, the leader of the group, has been one of the most outspoken anti-abortion activists in recent years.

‘Our lives begin at conception and all of the rights that we have as humans are based on the fact that we were allowed to live. There is a lot of false information out there. People who say a child is just a clump of cells. In the 21st century, we have ultrasound. We can see that the human heart begins to beat after 18 days. It’s important to inform people about that,’she told HRT.” (Voice of Croatia)

“Croatian police have reinforced all the resources necessary to control the state border, which is the EU’s external border with Bosnia and Herzegovina, by bringing in additional manpower and technical resources,” she said.

“”Yesterday the Croatian Foreign Minister, Marija Pejcinovic-Buric, officially accepted the six-month chairmanship of the Council of Europe from Denmark. This marks the first time that Croatia has led the Council of Europe.
