Eighth Serbian Culture Days in Istria begin

The Eighth Serbian Culture Days in Istria were opened in Pula on Tuesday with an exhibition of works by artists from Leskovac and food-tasting.

Serbian Ambassador Mira Nikolic said culture was an important aspect of the nurturing of minorities' identities and that Istria was "known for its multiculturality and European values, in which it leads the way in Croatia."

"Serbia wants the best relations with Croatia and we want to solve all outstanding issues, including minority issues, through bilateral mechanisms, with the full and equal participation of national minorities," she said, adding that Istria could be an example to all regions in Croatia of how to exercise national minority rights.
