Statement by the U.S. Embassy in Zagreb

We have made clear to both Slovenia and Croatia that we are not taking sides in this dispute.  It is up to these two countries, both EU members and NATO allies, to resolve this bilateral issue, and we are hopeful they can do so.  We welcome the comments by the Croatian leadership expressing a desire to see this border issue finally settled, and would encourage both sides to continue conversations to determine the best path forward in light of recent developments.
