Croatian diplomat suspended for 'white Europe' comments
A senior Berlin-based Croatian diplomat has been accused of damaging her country's reputation after she made racist comments on Facebook alongside idyllic images of the Adriatic coast. The diplomat's views were exposed by Croatia's Index. Foreign Minister Gordan Grlic Radman, who until recently was Croatia's ambassador to Germany, rejected the diplomat's claim that her account had been hacked and stressed that a diplomat was never a private individual. "When you're a diplomat you have to act like one and carry out state policy. Private life is over. If you aren't prepared for that, you can't be a diplomat," he was quoted as saying. Croatian President Colinda Grabar-Kitarovic underlined his message by tweeting that diplomats served their country and should act accordingly.
