The leaders expressed their condolences for the lives lost in this accident and assured the injured that they will have institutional care.

The Speaker of the Assembly, Glauk Konjufca expressed his condolences to the families who lost their loved ones in the tragic accident and wished a speedy recovery to the injured.

"No matter how big the distances are, they decrease, because they are measured by the heart. This Sunday, the long road did not bring home a part of us in exile. It brought pain to all the people. Today we share this pain and we stand united in this tragedy, like a big family that we are," Kurti said.
 
The return of fellow citizens from Croatia to Kosovo was done in joint coordination of the Government of the Republic of Kosovo and the Government of the Republic of Croatia.
