EU-Croatia accession treaty likely to be signed in December

Croatia will likely sign the accession treaty with the European Union in the first half of December, according to Vesna Pusic, the chairwoman of the parliamentary National Committee monitoring the accession negotiations.

“I don’t have information about the specific date, but I do have information that it will most likely be in the first half of December,” Pusic said at the conclusion of last week’s European Union entry talks.

Croatia is expected to hold parliamentary elections first.

If Croatia’s bid to join the EU stays on track, full membership is expected in mid-2013.
