Representatives of Croatia’s Roma community have marked International Roma Day by meeting with the country’s president.

The event is widely celebrated in all countries where the world’s 12 million Roma live.

It is a day when Roma celebrate the vision of the older generation to establish the foundations of Romani equality in Europe through political debate and festivities.

At a ceremony in Croatia’s parliament there was a call for unity and attention was drawn to the problems Roma face including discrimination, poverty, unemployment.

More than 17,000 Roma people live in Croatia.
