Croatian president hopes Slovenia will soon remove fence on border with Croatia

Croatian President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic told Slovenian Parliament Speaker Milan Brglez in Zagreb on Wednesday she hoped that the wire fence on the Croatian-Slovenian border would soon be removed, her office said in a press release.

The two officials discussed bilateral issues, cooperation in Central Europe and the migrant crisis.

Grabar-Kitarovic expressed concern about the situation on the Macedonian-Greek border and possible developments in Bosnia and Herzegovina if a joint European solution to the migrant crisis was not found.

She expressed hope that the wire fence which Slovenia put up on parts of its border with Croatia to stop illegal migrants would soon be removed "through dialogue on joint action in the migrant crisis."

Grabar-Kitarovic and Brglez were agreed that bilateral relations were good and that all outstanding issues should be dealt with through dialogue. She pushed for solving the status of the Croatian national minority in Slovenia, asking Brglez for support so that the status was regulated in keeping with the highest standards.

They also discussed the Adriatic-Baltic-Black Sea initiative and possibilities of informal cooperation and linking of Central European countries, notably in the sectors of transport and energy infrastructure, digitalisation, research and innovation, and cooperation among experts and young people.
