Angelina Jolie meets the President of Croatia
Los Angeles: Hollywood star Angelina Jolie visited the President of Croatia Ivo Josipovic on her recent trip to the country and discussed land mine problems in the country.
The 36-year-old actress received a friendly reception when she walked up the stairs to the presidential residence in Brijuni Island and she was personally greeted by the country`s smiling President, reported Daily Mail online.
Jolie shook hands with the leader and sat down with him to discuss the land mine problems remaining in his country from the 1991-95 war after Croatia declared independence from socialist Yugoslavia and fighting broke out with the Yugoslav National Army.
Afterwards she posed for pictures with Josipovic and his wife Tanja. While the American star is a UN Goodwill Ambassador, she was actually invited to the country by Croatian actor Rade Serbedzija, who has starred in hit films like `Mission: Impossible II` and `Batman Begins`.
During her visit, the star toured Brijuni with President Josipovic and Serbedzija, she saw a local theater production and spoke with a crowd of reporters and photographers.
Hours later Jolie and her 10-year-old son Maddox were spotted getting ready to leave Brijuni, which is located on a group of 14 small islands in the Croatian part of the northern Adriatic Sea.
