Slovenia to lift veto on Croatia's EU accession talks

Slovenia said on Friday it was ready to lift its veto on Croatia's European Union accession talks after the two prime ministers agreed on how to resolve a long-standing border dispute.

"The government will immediately propose (to parliamentary committees) that Slovenia removes restraints for Croatia's EU negotiating process," Slovenia's Prime Minister Borut Pahor said on Friday after talks with Croat counterpart Jadranka Kosor.

Slovenia, which in 2004 became the only former Yugoslav state so far to join the EU, has blocked Croatia's entry talks since last December, saying documentation Zagreb had submitted for the EU accession prejudged their border row.
