EU – Croatia’s membership is both region’s and Union’s interest


The Swedish Presidency over the EU welcomed today the agreement between Ljubljana and Zagreb for unblocking of the Croatian pre-accession talks, emphasizing that the Croatian entrance is of interest of the entire Union.

“The Presidency welcomes the agreement reached between Slovenia and Croatia,” said Swedish Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt in a statement published at a website of the Sweden’s Presidency over the EU.

“Croatia’s admission in the Union would be to the benefit of not only Croatia and Slovenia, but also to the neighbors and the entire EU. I am fully convinced that Croatia would invest even more efforts into reforms and other issues aimed at meeting the membership criteria,” the Swedish prime minister said.
