Zagreb, 24 July 2020 - Minister Grlić Radman: Foreign policy priorities admission to Schengen and euro areas, OECD

Foreign and European Affairs Minister Gordan Grlić Radman said on Friday that Zagreb "is investing huge efforts" to make sure that the Netherlands will remove Croatia from its list of countries for which the orange travel advisory is applied.

Grlić Radman added that he was sure that the Netherlands would reconsider its decision, thus enabling Dutch tourists to continue spending their holidays in Croatia.

On Tuesday, the Netherlands put Croatia on the orange list following a rise in the incidence of coronavirus in Croatia. The Dutch government recommended that people returning from Croatia should go into 14-day self-isolation.

Grlić Radman, who was reappointed the foreign and European affairs minister in the second government led by Prime Minister Andrej Plenković, said that the priorities of the national foreign policy remained the admission to the Schengen and euro areas and to the OECD.
