Outgoing President: History will speak of my work Izvor: Facebook Kolinda Grabar Kitarović

Outgoing President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic on Saturday posted on Facebook a farewell to the Croatian public at the end of her five-year term, saying history would speak of her work objectively and that she was proud of what was done.

"I discharged the presidential duty deeply convinced that the political, moral and cultural values which guided us for centuries in the struggle for national freedom and state independence, notably in the Homeland War, are the foundation for building a strong state and a just society. The interests of the Croatian people, state and all citizens I defended and promoted with dignity and responsibility, as stipulated by the Constitution, above anyone's and any partial interests," she said.

Grabar-Kitarovic said the situation in society and the state she encountered when took office demanded that she defines priorities for the state policy, including demographic revitalisation, stronger homeland security, alleviating social divisions and stronger international positioning.

"I proposed solutions to decentralisation problems, overall economic development and balanced regional development, branding, education, social justice, emigrants, care for Croats in Bosnia and Herzegovina and neighbouring states as well as foreign policy initiatives."

Grabar-Kitarovic said she paid special attention to Croatia's international position which "today is better than ever" and that she initiated the Three Seas Initiative to that end.

"Thereby I gave our foreign policy a quality tool for strengthening Croatia's position on the international scene, first and foremost within Central Europe and the Mediterranean. Today, Croatia thinks Croatian and acts European and globally."
