Croatian president and Serbian PM meet in Mostar

Croatian President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic and Serbian Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic met on the margins of a business fair in Mostar, southern Bosnia and Herzegovina, on Tuesday.

They talked about relations between Croatia and Serbia and not about Serbia's EU accession negotiations, Hina learned. The meeting lasted about ten minutes.

Grabar-Kitarovic and Vucic attended the opening of the International Economic Fair Mostar 2016.

Relations between the two countries have become strained after Croatia did not give the green light for the opening of Chapter 23 (Judiciary and Fundamental Rights) in EU-Serbia negotiations. Croatia demands that Belgrade first revoke regional jurisdiction for war crimes, guarantee rights for the Croat minority in Serbia and ensure full cooperation with the Hague war crimes tribunal.
