Serbian Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic has congratulated Andrej Plenkovic on his appointment as the new prime minister of Croatia.
“I hope that you and the government of the Republic of Croatia will contribute with your work to the good neighbourly relations, the well-being and a prosperous future of our two countries,” Vucic said in his message to the newly-elected Croatian PM.
“You will have a sincere partner in the government of the Republic of Serbia and in me personally in achieving this goal, because our cooperation is an important pillar of peace and stability in the region, as it will promote the common European values,” Vucic further wrote, adding that he expected a good cooperation and wished Plenkovic much success in his new position.
The coalition government with Plenkovic at its helm, who is also the leader of the HDZ party, was elected in the Croatian Assembly on Wednesday with 91 votes in favour, 45 against, and 3 abstained.
The media reported earlier that, unlike Croatia’s previous HDZ-led government, this one does not include ministers Miro Kovac and Zlatan Hasanbegovic, who were seen as members of the right wing party’s more radical fraction.
