The Croatian President, Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic, attended the tributes to the tens of millions of people killed in World War I today in Paris. In a ceremony in the French capital world leaders paid their respects exactly a century from the end of World War I.
On her social media channels the Croatian President wrote “Let's remember! Do not forget! The First World War ended exactly 100 years ago, November 11, 1918.”
The commemoration marked the centrepiece of tributes to honour those who died during the 1914 to 1918 war and to commemorate the signing of the Armistice that brought the fighting to an end at exactly 11 a.m. on Nov 11, 1918.
The French President, Emmanuel Macron, addressed the leaders and warned of the risk of nationalism.
