Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ) president Tomislav Karamarko called on Croatian citizens in his Christmas message on Thursday to forget misunderstandings and rows, and to be united and strong as a nation.
"Christmas is also a time of love for one's fellow man. Let's forget misunderstandings and rows. Let's be united and strong as a nation. We must believe that there is a light which is leading us to a better future. We lit it with tolerance, common sense and an agreement with our political partners," Karamarko said on his Facebook page.
He said "we can build a better and happier society" and that "many challenges are ahead." "I wish you all a merry Christmas in a more beautiful and happier Croatia."
