Today, the Mayor of the City of Dubrovnik, Mato Franković, received the Ambassador of the Republic of Kosovo to the Republic of Croatia, Martin Berishaj, on an official visit.

The reception was also attended by Deputy Mayor Jelka Tepšić and Head of the Administrative Department for European Funds, Regional and International Cooperation, Zrinka Raguž.

Mayor Franković welcomed Ambassador Bersihaj, expressing satisfaction with the continuous bilateral cooperation in various fields.

"Strengthening and continuing an exceptionally good cooperation with the Republic of Kosovo is the focus of both the City of Dubrovnik and the Republic of Croatia. What I want to emphasize on this occasion is that the connection between Janjevo and Dubrovnik has been incredibly strong, deep and solid since the Republic of Dubrovnik. I am sure that it will remain so, but it is necessary to strengthen relations and preserve them for future times and generations", said the mayor on this occasion.

He expressed special satisfaction with the ordination of the new Bishop of Dubrovnik, Msgr. Roko Glasnović, who is originally from Janjevo, which makes another additional link between nations.

Ambassador Berishaj said that Croatia, and especially Dubrovnik, are a great example when it comes to nurturing and maintaining relations, and that the Republic of Kosovo can learn a lot, especially when it comes to transitional revitalization and prosperity of the Croatian population in many segments.

Today's meeting between representatives of the City of Dubrovnik and the Ambassador of Kosovo included a number of other topics discussed, such as the status of Croats in Kosovo, the importance of cultural and monumental heritage and the historical ties between the two countries.
