Speaking on Tuesday at the opening a regional conference on Serbian-Croatian relations held near the Croatian town of Obrovac, Milorad Pupovac, the chairman of the Serbian National Council in Croatia, said that there are still numerous unresolved issues in relations between the two countries.

These include: the issue of refugees, missing persons and the position of national minorities, processing war crimes, mutual genocide suits and the disappearance of cultural treasures.

The president of the Democratic Alliance of Croats in Vojvodina, Petar Kuntic,  said that the political representatives of Serbs in Croatia and Croats in Serbia were in a similar position, because their parties are in the opposition, hence they would have more difficulty achieving their rights.

Kuntic said that the particular problems that Croats in Serbia face are education and information.

The conference on Croatian-Serbian relations was held in the Croatian village of Golubic for the fifth year in a row.

The event is organized by the Novi Sad Center for History, Democratic and Reconciliation and the Golubic Society for History, Cooperation and Reconciliation.
