Croatian president to attend global security forum in Bratislava

Current issues of global security and cooperation will determine the content of the 11th edition of GLOBSEC Bratislava Global Security Forum – an international security conference, scheduled to be held in Slovakia's capital on 15-17 April.

The event will be attended by numerous heads of state, prime ministers and foreign ministers of central and eastern Europe, including Croatian President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic.

"During the 11 years of its existence, GLOBSEC has become one of the most prestigious security fora in the world and its role next year will be enhanced by the upcoming NATO Summit in Warsaw," organisers said in a press release.

Over a thousand guests will discuss hot topics that are set to dominate the Warsaw Summit. The future of the common European project is at stake, as the UK put its reform demands on the table, and the migration crisis is not ebbing. GLOBSEC thus again becomes the platform for countries’ officials to consult their respective opinions ahead of the NATO Summit.

Apart from the Croatian president, the conference in Bratislava will be attended by Slovakian President Andrej Kiska, Bulgarian and Macedonian heads of state Rosen Plevneliev and Gjorge Ivanov, the prime ministers of the Czech Republic and Slovakia, the German defence ministers, the foreign ministers of Slovakia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Hungary, Lithuania, Latvia, Romania, the Czech Republic, Poland and Ukraine, as well as representatives of NATO, think tanks, the academic and business communities and the media.

Grabar-Kitarovic is expected to hold several bilateral meetings on the fringes of the forum.
