Today, Croatia delivered a note of protest to Montenegro at the proposal of the President of the Assembly Andrije Mandić, who said that the political representatives of the Serbs will propose a resolution on Jasenovac, reports Večernji list.

That media reports that the note "apostrophizes the inappropriateness of manipulating the victims of Jasenovac for political purposes", the instrumentalization of Croatia for internal politics in Montenegro, and calls on Montenegro to refrain from anything that could jeopardize its path towards the European Union.

Večernji list reminds that immediately after the initiation of the initiative in the Montenegrin parliament, Croatia expressed its disagreement to the authorities in Podgorica, with a note that they will monitor the situation and react officially. This happened today, when the charge d'affaires of Montenegro was invited to the Croatian Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs and was handed a note.

The note expresses concern over the fact that the memory of the victims of Jasenovac is being politicized and misused for internal political contests in Montenegro and is placed in the context of discussions on the Resolution of the UN General Assembly on the commemoration of the genocide in Srebrenica, with which it has no political-historical connection. , and in a way that does not contribute to the sincere expression of piety towards the victims, the condemnation of crimes and the development of a culture of remembrance.
