Karamarko: Croatia's recognition result of HDZ policy

Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ) leader Tomislav Karamarko said on Friday, on the occasion of the 24th anniversary of international recognition of Croatia, that it was the result of the policy of the then state leadership headed by the HDZ and Franjo Tudjman.

"The process of international recognition of Croatia culminated on 15 January 1992 when we were recognised by the countries of the then European Community. This success of the HDZ, Dr Tudjman and the Croatian state leadership is all the more valuable if one has in mind that on 25 June 1991, the day of declaration of independence, deputies of the SKH-SDP (Croatian League of Communists - Social Democratic Party) walked out of parliament in protest at that act. International recognition of Croatia came as the result of the policy of the Croatian state leadership led by the HDZ and Dr Franjo Tudjman," Karamarko said on his Facebook page.

"We gained international recognition in a war in which tens of thousands of our fellow citizens gave their lives for freedom and hundreds of thousands would bear permanent physical and mental scars. Never again will we allow anyone to play with the existence and international reputation of Croatia," he stressed.
