“Prime Minister Miro Cerar rejected on Wednesday a report by the Croatian newspaper Večernji List that an agreement had been reached on resolving the border dispute and that he backed out of signing the document at the last minute. He labelled the report as complete fabrication.

Talking to the press after hosting the Portuguese prime minister in Ljubljana, Cerar said that Slovenia had discussed with Croatia only ways for the implementation of the border arbitration decision. No agreement was ever reached, said Cerar.

‘Slovenia tried to persuade Croatia to respect the border arbitration decision and failed. I went to Zagreb nonetheless to show the public that Slovenia will insist on arbitration implementation,’ said Cerar, referring to the 19 December trip.” (Slovenia Times)
