Moreover, during his visit to Croatia, Lorenzana and Croatian Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Defense Damir Krstičević last 11 April 2019, in Split, Croatia signed a Memorandum of Understanding on Defense Cooperation which provides a framework for cooperation in the field of defense, “on the basis of reciprocity and mutual benefit”.

“Through the MOU, both countries agreed to cooperate in Defense and security policy, military education, training and capacity building, military equipment, logistics and maintenance, Defense industry and technology, and other areas mutually approved by both parties,” DND said.

“These will pave the way for exchanges of delegations and personnel; personnel for on-the-job-training; information, documentation and materials; and participation in seminars, workshops and other activities organized by both countries,” it added.
