Statement from U.S. Ambassador W. Robert Kohorst

Congratulations to the Croatian government – particularly Prime Minister Plenković and Minister Ćorić – for approving funding for the Krk LNG terminal.  This project is an investment which maximizes Croatia’s gas supply options and makes a major contribution to regional gas supply diversification and security.  The terminal will make LNG imports from a wide-range of suppliers possible and this competition will ensure the best gas prices.  I am pleased to see our strategic partner and ally taking such a positive leadership role.
