United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon took stock of Croatia's two decades of progress from a war-torn country to a stable democracy on the brink of European Union membership during a speech at Zagreb's Old City Hall building on 20 July. The speech launched a three-day visit to Croatia. Ban noted that Croatians had fought hard to realize their dream of independence and now were sending peacekeeping troops to assist the world's trouble spots. He also praised Croatia for its international engagement, its assistance to countries in need and its support to other nations in transition. This is Ban's first official visit to Croatia and marks the country's 20th anniversary of recognition by the world organization. The visit is part of a tour of all the countries that were once part of Yugoslavia.
