Iran's attack on Israel has sparked a large number of reactions worldwide. Certainly, the most interesting reactions come from the leaders of certain countries who oppose such a situation in the world, aware that this could potentially lead to the escalation of the third world war. One of those who reacted is the President of Croatia, Zoran Milanović. During a visit to a city in Croatia, Milanović commented on the Iranian attack on Israel. 

Milanović shares the opinion of important political figures worldwide, aware that this could impact the beginning of a new world war. For him, the most important thing is that there were no major casualties. In his statement, Milanović also mentioned the Croatian Prime Minister, Andrej Plenković. He believes that individuals like Plenković cannot help Croatia in such a situation, emphasizing the war in Ukraine and the actions of Plenković and his ministers.

"These are all segments of the third world war. I'm glad there weren't major casualties, and it would be good if it stops now so we don't get into all these discussions about who attacked first. This is not our conflict, just like the one in Ukraine isn't. This only shows that Croatia needs calm and responsible people, and that's not Plenković and his ministers who tried to drag us into the conflict in Ukraine through the training of soldiers, which we barely stopped in parliament," said Milanović, as reported by KLIX!

The Croatian president intends to stay neutral and does not want to give a specific opinion regarding this war, aware that it could cause problems for his country. His priority seems to be the progress of Croatia and peace in this country.

"He (Plenković) is trying to please someone else. Ukraine, Israel, and Iran are something we should stay out of, and I have done that. Nobody asks us anything, and they shouldn't because we will only attract anger towards ourselves, and we don't need that. In Croatia, Croatian flags are flown, not American, Israeli, or Russian ones."- Milanović concluded!

On the other hand, Croatian Prime Minister Andrej Plenković has reacted, condemning Iran's attack on Israel. Plenković is aware that the situation in the Middle East is chaotic and that it is necessary to take all measures to prevent further escalation of the conflict.

He emphasized that such attacks by Iran pose a threat to regional security. The Croatian Prime Minister highlighted that Croatia is ready to support all efforts that would lead to de-escalation.

Zoran Milanović: In this country, there is only room for one flag, and that is the Croatian flag

Croatian President Zoran Milanović called on Iran last October to recognize Israel, and for Israel to recognize Palestine, and called for peace and restraint after Hamas attacked Israel.

"I can repeat what I said to the Iranian president, whom I met in New York, that it would be good, fair, and logical for them to recognize Israel," Milanović told reporters, adding that it would also be good for Israel to recognize the Palestinian state.

The Croatian president is known for his controversial statements, and even then, he was clear about his predictions and views. Milanović was not optimistic that it would happen. He emphasized that Croatia is his priority and that the Croatian flag comes first for him, with all others far behind. Milanović is known as a patriot and a man who puts his country first.

"But that won't happen, no matter what we say, no matter what support we give today to this one or that one, no matter whose flags we raise. For me, in this country, there is only room for one flag, and that is the Croatian flag, and all others can be only half a spear below, but not at the same level. Neither the EU nor NATO, let them be there, but that's not the same level, especially the flags of third countries," added Milanović.

Five months later, things have not improved since his statement, they are getting worse, and there is fear that they will continue to worsen day by day. Both countries have their allies, but it seems that Israel's allies are much stronger, and that in such an atmosphere, no one can do anything to Israel. Although we often see statements from important world leaders condemning Israel and attacks on civilians, the situation remains unchanged.

Iran's attack on Israel has deepened the crisis in the Middle East, with fear that other countries could do the same. This is not a good situation for either side in this conflict. We will see what the future holds and whether Israelis will face the same problems again.
