WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump, in a meeting with Croatian President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic in Warsaw, “expressed support for timely completion of the Krk Island liquefied natural gas facility” as the nation seeks to diversify its energy sector, the White House said in a statement on Thursday.

Trump also urged Grabar-Kitarovic “to do everything possible to advance regional reconciliation” in the western Balkans, the White House said.
