EU/Croatia Accession Council: extracts from the joint press conference by Dimitrij Rupel and Gordan Jandroković

57 views

The European Union assured Croatia on 17 June 2008 in Luxembourg that the Irish rejection of the reformed EU treaty would not slow down the country's entry into the EU. Dimitrij Rupel, Slovenian Minister for Foreign Affairs and President in office of the Council, told journalists that Croatia's entry was unrelated to problems with the ratification of the Lisbon Treaty. Nevertheless, Dimitrij Rupel acknowledged that expanding the EU while the Lisbon Treaty was in limbo might trigger psychological or political problems in EU capitals. Gordan Jandroković, Croatian Minister for Foreign Affairs and European Integration, said that Croatia had very optimistic messages from the European Commission and also from Member States, and would continue with their reforms and negotiations process. The EU and Croatia opened on 17 June 2008 two new chapters in the negotiations process. The first one is related to the free movement of workers inside the EU and the second one concerns the social policy and employment issues.
