Pope Francis met with Andrej Plenković, prime minister of Croatia.
They had a private 20-minute conversation in which they discussed European challenges, including migration, peace and security. The prime minister brought various gifts, including a breviary.
The pope, in turn, gave him a medallion evoking justice and peace. He also gave the prime minister a signed copy of his message for World Day of Peace, as well as one on human fraternity signed alongside Muslim leaders.
The Vatican says they also discussed the situation of Croatians in Bosnia-Herzegovina.
