PM says Croatia feels solidarity with Belgium

Croatia condemns this morning's attacks in Brussels in the strongest terms and feels solidarity with Belgium and its residents, Prime Minister Tihomir Oreskovic said on Tuesday in a note of condolence to his Belgian counterpart Charles Michel.

"The Croatian government condemns in the strongest terms these attacks on the basic values of civilised society whose only goal is death, spreading fear and senseless destruction. We deeply regret the human victims and extend sincere condolences to all those who lost their dearest," Oreskovic said.

He wished those injured in the blasts a quick recovery and expressed Croatia's solidarity with all the residents of the European capital and all of Belgium.

The Croatian Foreign Ministry has no information yet as to whether any Croatians were injured or killed in the explosions at Brussels airport and subway, which have claimed 28 lives.
