PM Plenkovic: Croatia and Slovenia closer to border agreement

PM Plenkovic: Croatia and Slovenia closer to border agreement

Zagreb, 12 January 2018 (MIA) - Croatia and Slovenia are closer to an agreement on their border than appears in public, Croatian Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic said on Friday.

Croatia has presented its model for the agreement to Slovenia, which could be a very good basis for a final solution, Hina quoted Plenkovic. 

"Once again I repeat - I think we are much closer to a solution than appears in public. We have explained our stances to the Slovenian side as well as to all our partners in the European Union," Plenkovic said in the southern town of Solin.

"We are acting responsibly and maturely in this situation and are not undertaking any unilateral steps that could in any way contribute to worsening relations between Croatia and Slovenia," he added. 

Earlier in the day, Slovenia's Foreign Minister Karl Erjavec said in parliament that sooner or later, Croatia would have to change its attitude to the arbitration ruling on the Croatian-Slovenian border dispute and that his ministry was preparing a lawsuit to be filed against Croatia before the Court of Justice of the EU.

"At this moment, I don't see any grounds for any lawsuit before the European court because Croatia is not violating any element of EU law. If Slovenia heads down that path, we will know how to respond," Plenkovic said in a comment on Erjavec's statement, underscoring that Croatia had "presented its model to the Slovenian side and it could be a very good foundation for a final solution." lk/19:15
