The Minister of Foreign Affairs of Croatia, Mr. Miomir Zulzul, is arriving in Israel today (14 March 2004) for an official visit as the guest of Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs Silvan Shalom.

The Croatian foreign minister will be accompanied by Science Minister Dragan Primorac and Minister of Agriculture Petar Cabankovic.

The visiting ministers will meet with the Israeli president, the prime minister, the foreign minister, and will also visit Yad Vashem The Holocaust Martyrs’ and Heroes’ Remembrance Authority. In addition, they will tour some research institutions and look into options for economic cooperation between Israel and Croatia.

Ties between the two countries, which established diplomatic relations in 1997, are excellent, and this visit to Israel by the Croatian foreign minister is expected to contribute to the deepening of those ties.
