Nearly sixteen years after a bloody war of independence, Croatia is preparing to dock for good at the EU Commission in Brussels has proposed, this Friday at Twenty-Seven of the negotiations by the end of membership.
“The European Commission has just proposed to the European Council of Ministers to complete the last four chapters of the 35 that have marked nearly six years of talks, President of the EU executive Jose Manuel Barroso in a statement said “This opens the possibility that Croatia join the EU as the 28th member state.”
Zagreb placed on actual accession by mid-2013. Date “indicative” Barroso also suggested that this Friday, if this indicative date proposed by the Commission should be retained by the Council.
Croatia should be the second country from the former Yugoslavia to join, after Slovenia, part of the Union since 2004. But unlike Slovenia, whose independence from Yugoslavia was very quick and inexpensive life, that of Croatia was carried in the blood and fighting, which continued for four years (1991 -1995).
This end of accession negotiations also occurs within days of the twentieth anniversary of the proclamation of independence by Croatia and Slovenia, 25 June 1991, highlighting how the combination of Zagreb, the EU has been more difficult and longer than Ljubjlana. He has been hampered by a border dispute between the two countries.
