Croatian Foreign Minister Gordan Grlic Radman on Wednesday reacted on Twitter to the unrest at the United States Capitol and underscored that “upholding democratic institutions and peaceful transition of power is of utmost importance.”
The minister said on Twitter that he was “following with great concern the events in Washington DC”.
A crowd of supporters of President Donald Trump stormed the building of the Capitol, the seat of American democracy, in an attempt to overturn the election results and stop a Congress session which was supposed to certify the victory of Democratic President-elect Joe Biden. Police retaliated by drawing weapons and shooting tear gas.
In the meantime, police officers in full riot gear began to pull away Trump supporters from the Capitol.
