Croatian Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign and European Affairs Marija Pejčinović Burić will be visiting Washington for an official bilateral meeting with Secretary of State Pompeo on September 12 to emphasize important momentum in the U.S.-Croatia partnership. Croatia has a leading role in South East Europe in advancing the strategic alliance with the United States, and is committed to further building upon this privileged relationship to further advance security cooperation in the region. Croatia’s immediate Western Balkan neighborhood is undergoing major threats to its stability. The stabilization of South East Europe and cooperating on counter-terrorism remains an important strategic goal for both Croatia and the United States. Moreover, as an important member of NATO, Croatia has also shown commitment to the 2% goal in defense of budget increases and stands close with allies in the face of joint threats. Join us as Deputy Prime Minister Marija Pejčinović Burić discusses how to further advance Trans-Atlantic cooperation and continue to strengthen the important security alliance the two countries share.
