Slovenia and Croatia "getting closer" to resolving border dispute

"The Slovenian and Croatian foreign ministers said Sunday they had made further progress towards resolving their border dispute which has hindered Croatia getting European Union membership.

Croatia's Davor Jandrokovic and Slovenia's Samuel Zbogar said their talks in the Slovenian resort of Bled had discussed 'major and serious' cooperation which could result in Slovenia eventually lifting its objection to Croatian EU membership.

'We're going to agree first on what to say, then make a public statement,' said Zbogar after the meeting, which was also attended by Slovenian Prime Minister Borut Pahor."
