President of the Republic of Serbia Mr. Aleksandar Vucic along with the Croatian President Mrs. Kolinda Grabar Kitarovic visited on the 12th of Feberuary 2018 the Residence of the Metropolitan of Zagreb-Ljubljana, where they talked with students of the Academy of the Serbian National Council. On this occasion they were presented a project “The Future of the Serbs in Croatia”.

At the beginning of their conversations, Serbian Orthodox Metropolitan Porfirije addressed Mr. Vucic and Mrs. Grabar Kitarovic pointing out that he himself was excited by the words they had pronounced that day, the words of responsibility for and care about normal relations between the two countries, Serbia and Croatia. Addressing President Vucic, His Excellency underlined that his visit represented encouragement for the Serbian people in Croatia. According to his words, Serbia and Croatia have been always directed to one another, but unfortunately, circumstances of life have been such "that we have moved away from each other."
