Croatia

The Republic of Croatia joined the Global Coalition in September 2014 and is committed to the Coalition’s goal of eliminating the threat posed by Daesh. Croatia takes an active role in the Coalition’s Foreign Terrorist Fighters Working Group, as well as contributing to humanitarian efforts aimed at alleviating the suffering of the Syrian and Iraqi people.

Violence must not be legitimised by any religion or any ideology. Extremism can only be fought by addressing all the elements of the conflict. The approach must be multidimensional and needs to combine security, political, military, economic, educational, cultural and religious approaches.

H.E. Mrs. Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović, President of the Republic of Croatia
