At the beginning of today’s government cabinet session Prime Minister Andrej Plenković commented on Croatia’s aspirations to join the Schengen regime.
Prime Minister Andrej Plenković said that his stay in Brussels last week was rather intense. He said that he spoke with all current and future leaders of European institutions.
“What is important is that we have a firm guarantee from the President of the European Commission, Junker, that during the last weeks of his mandate, Croatia will receive a positive evaluation in the context of fulfilling all criteria related to Schengen. I have already said that it is difficult to foresee when that decision will be adopted, but we will work on that, since we believe it is good for us and the European Union and especially our neighboring countries, for Croatia to join the Schengen area as soon as possible,” said Plenković.
