ZAGREB, September 29, 2019 - The 15th anniversary of classes in the Croatian language in Montenegro was marked in Tivat on Saturday, with the Croatian president's envoy underlining the importance of Croatia's institutional connection with expatriate communities around the world.

Croatia's consul general in Kotor, Jasminka Lončarević, conveyed President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović's message, which also underscored the importance of building national unity and solidarity with full respect for the states and nations where Croats live.

Lončarević congratulated, on behalf of Grabar-Kitarović and the Consulate General in Kotor, "all students, all teachers and their parents as well as everyone who, in these 15 years, have maintained the continuity of the Croatian language and culture in Montenegro."

Classes in Croatian in Montenegro began on 18 September 2004 at the initiative of the Croatian Cultural Association Napredak from Tivat, in cooperation with the Croatian Civil Society from Kotor and the Croatian Education Ministry.
