FOR EUR/SCE

E.O. 12958: N/A
TAGS: PREL SOCI HR
SUBJECT: AMBASSADOR'S MEETING WITH CROATIAN DEPUTY PRIME
MINISTER AND VETERANS AFFAIRS MINISTER KOSOR


1. Mr. Secretary, During my meeting on July 18 with Croatian
Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Family, Veterans and
Intergenerational Solidarity Jadranka Kosor, I informed the
Minister of your decision to resign. The Minister expressed
her regret at hearing this news and reiterated her
appreciation for the hospitality that you had shown her
during her recent visit. She expressed the hope it still
might be possible for the United States and Croatia to
conclude some type of framework agreement on cooperation on
veterans' issues. I promised the Minister I would convey her
request to you, as well as her best wishes in your future
endeavors.

2. While I recognize the many demands upon your Department,
I believe a modest program of cooperation with Croatia, which
has a significant veteran population from its Homeland War,
would contribute to the strengthening of our relations. I
hope it will be possible to engage the Croatians on a
framework agreement in the near future. Regards.
BRADTKE
