Croatia again calls for international arbitration to resolve border dispute with Slovenia

02/02/2007

ZAGREB, Croatia -- Prime Minister Ivo Sanader reiterated his call Thursday (February 1st) for international arbitration to resolve the ongoing dispute with Slovenia on national borders and fishing rights. He describes it as the only fair way to settle the dispute, which has dragged on for years. Slovenia opposes international arbitration.

In other news Thursday, the European Commission invited Croatia to present its positions on three more chapters of the acquis -- information society and media, company law and taxation. As these three do not require preliminary conditions, negotiations could likely begin fairly soon. (Vecernji List - 02/02/07; HINA - 01/02/07)
