'It would be healthy for Croatian society to have joint Jasenovac commemoration' Izvor: N1

Croatian Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic said on Saturday it would be healthy for Croatian society to have a joint commemoration in Jasenovac, adding that his government had invested a lot of effort to have that happen, but that the other side also must make some effort.

Plenkovic dismissed accusation which the head of the Coordinating Body of Jewish Municipalities in Croatia, Ognjen Kraus, made at a separate commemoration, that historical revisionism in Croatia was continuing and that, because of the inaction of state institutions, the extreme right was becoming increasingly aggressive.

Plenkovic said he was making a lot of effort so that the victims were commemorated in the right way and that the Ustasha regime was unambiguously condemned.

He said it would be healthy for Croatian society to have a joint commemoration, stressing that it takes two sides for that to happen.

He also rejected criticism from his coalition partner, the Independent Democratic Serb Party (SDSS) that the government had not done enough to reduce the negating of the Holocaust and prevent revisionism.
