A new poll by GfK Croatia suggests public support for NATO membership is growing. According to results published, 52% of the public backs Croatia's entry in the Pact, which is up some 9 percentage points from March. Pollsters credit the government's effort to provide more information on Croatia's tasks and benefits, once it becomes a member of the Alliance.
In other news, a disaster response exercise run by the Euro-Atlantic Disaster Response Co-ordination Centre continues in coastal Zadar county. The drill involves 1 000 participants from 44 members of NATO and the Alliance's Partnership for Peace programme.
