After a trilateral meeting which he held with his counterparts, Anže Logar of Slovenia and Luigi Di Maio of Italy, in Zaprešić, west of Zagreb, Grlić Radman said that Croatia and Slovenia were trying to find “a model that will include everybody, both Slovenian and Croatian fishermen.”

“I think we are on the right course.”

Both Grlić Radman and Slovenia’s minister Logar agree that it is necessary to find a solution that will make it easier for local fishermen to do business in Savudrijska Vala Bay that is in Piran Bay.

Last Monday, Croatia’s Prime Minister Andrej Plenković and his Slovenian counterpart Janez Janša discussed this topic and after their meeting in Zagreb, Plenković announced a transitional solution.

According to the Slovenian media reports, Slovenian fishermen and Opposition politicians seemed to be against a transitional solution that will include the establishment of a joint fisheries zone in the bay.

The two PMs also agreed that the solution should include the annulment of fines imposed on local fishermen when they trespassed the borderline which is not yet defined.
