The Serb National Council (SNV) organised a traditional reception on Wednesday on the occasion of Christmas celebrated according to the Julian calendar and the event was attended by prominent politicians and public figures, including caretaker Prime Minister Zoran Milanovic and Prime Minister Designate Tihomir Oreskovic.

SNV president Milorad Pupovac said that unity in inequality was not possible and that one of the most important characteristics of patriotism  was "to make our country as efficient as possible providing for the interests of all its citizens.

Those present were addressed by Croatian president envoy Domagoj Juricic, caretaker Prime Minister Zoran Milanovic, Parliament speaker envoy Jasen Mesic, Zagreb Mayor Milan Bandic and Metropolitan of Zagreb and Ljubljana of Serbian Orthodox Church Porfirije.

"Unity in inequality is not possible and calling for unity without having in mind facts that our society is getting more unequal everyday cannot be realised as a true unity," Pupovac said.
