Croatia recalls diplomat from Germany over racist comments

STEPANAKERT, AUGUST 21,  ARTSAKHPRESSForeign Minister Gordan Grlic says Elizabeta Madjarevic has been recalled from Germany and will face a disciplinary court. Madjarevic served as first secretary at the Croatian embassy in Berlin. Croatian media have reported that she wrote Croatia was "white" as Europe once was.

The comments have since been deleted. Madjarevic reportedly has claimed her profile was hacked.

Grlic says "Croatia shares European values, and racism, any form of xenophobia and intolerance, do not belong in the foreign affairs service."

Top Croatian officials also have condemned Madjarevic's comments.
