International arbitration to solve Slovenia-Croatia border row

Slovenia and Croatia have decided to resolve their long-standing border dispute through international arbitration, Slovenian Prime Minister Borut Pahor said Thursday.

Pahor said that the two countries decided, behind closed doors, to let the arbitration commission resolve their dispute and that the European Commission will 'soon' present that agreement.

Pahor, speaking to journalists in Ljubljana, did not give details of the agreement.

'I would not put my hand in the fire if I was not sure the agreement was a good one,' he said."
