    PM Cerar: The process of implementing the arbitration ruling offers us an opportunity to strengthen mutual trust

    12.07.2017 -

    PM Miro Cerar welcomed Croatian PM Andrej Plenković to Ljubljana for a working visit. Talks between the two leaders today focused above all on the arbitration decision, with Mr Plenković reiterating that the Croatian side does not recognise it. Mr Cerar, for his part, insisted that the arbitration award is binding on both sides and that respecting it also means acknowledging the importance of international law and a commitment to the fundamental values of the EU, such as the rule of law and respect for international obligations entered into.



Government Priorities

The new cabinet under Miro Cerar has given new impetus to Slovenia. Several years of economic crisis have revealed a number of social problems, which the new ministerial team will be forced to take on if it is to restore the country’s international reputation and economic strength.


Slovenia and Croatia signed on 4 November 2009 an arbitration agreement establishing an arbitral tribunal tasked with issuing a final award on the land and maritime boundary on the basis of all the relevant facts. This ruling will be final and binding on both countries.

SFRY succession

Five countries (Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Macedonia and the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia – today Serbia) signed the Agreement on succession issues by which it was conclusively confirmed that five sovereign equal successor states were formed upon the dissolution of the former SFRY.
