SECRETARY CLINTON: Well, it is an honor to welcome the president of Croatia here today as part of his very significant visit to the United States.

And he’s had a very good meeting with the Vice President, other meetings here in Washington.

PRESIDENT JOSIPOVIC: Thank you very much. Your support from the United States and friendship from this side is very important for us, from the very beginning of our stay. So I’m very happy that I’m here with (inaudible) and I hope that our meeting will be so fruitful as those before. Thank you very much.
SECRETARY CLINTON: Thank you. Thank you, Mr. President. Thank you all very much.
