EU welcomes deal between Croatia, Slovenia

The European Union on Friday welcomed Croatia and Slovenia's agreement on how to solve a long-standing border dispute and said Croatia can now continue EU ascension talks.

"We welcome this... That means we are now ready as the European Union to go ahead with Croatia's ascension," said Swedish prime minister Frederik Reinfeldt, whose country holds the rotating EU presidency.

Reinfeldt is in South Africa as part of an EU delegation to a summit between the European Union and South Africa.
