Minister expects speedy resolution of veterans' problems

The Minister of Veterans' Affairs, Tomo Medved, said on Tuesday he expected the problems of the veteran community to be resolved soon.

"Together with our veteran colleagues we have identified the problems and courses of action and I expect us to reach a solution to their problems very quickly," Medved told the press following an announcement that a group of veterans who had been protesting outside the ministry's building for 555 days had ended their protest.

Medved said that he was in constant touch with the veterans and that they had joined various project groups to deal with their problems. He added that 11 project goals had been agreed.

Medved said that a decision on drawing up a single law governing the rights of veterans and victims of the 1991-1995 Homeland War would be based on a thorough analysis. He said that after the necessary documents for this law were prepared, he would propose a consensus among the parliamentary groups on the matter.
