Croatia Remains Open to Dialogue with Slovenia on Border Issue

Total Croatia News

ZAGREB, August 17, 2019 – Croatia remains ready for dialogue with Slovenia with an aim of finding a mutually acceptable solution to the outstanding border issue, Croatia’s Foreign and European Affairs Ministry said in a press release on Friday.

Zagreb does not want to be involved in counter-productive media discussions on the matter, the Croatian ministry said after the Slovenian foreign ministry issued a press release in a bid to counter the statements which Croatian Minister Gordan Grlić Radman made in his recent interview to the N1 commercial broadcaster.

“Croatian remains ready for dialogue and believes that there is no need to raise tensions through press releases. On the other hand, Croatia believes that calm and level-headed talks can facilitate efforts to reach a mutually acceptable solution to the issue (of border demarcation) in the spirit of good neighbourly tradition between Croatia and Slovenia,” the Croatian ministry said.

Earlier on Friday, the Slovenian foreign ministry accused Croatian Minister Grlić Radman of having said untruths about the Slovenia-Croatia border dispute and arbitration.

In his recent interview with the N1 broadcaster, Minister Grlić Radman spoke about his informal meeting with his Slovenian counterpart Miro Cerar while he was on a vacation in Croatia this summer. The Croatian minister also recalled the chronology of the border dispute.
