“The Slovenian Prime Minister, Miro Cerar, said on Tuesday he has not ruled out the possibility that Slovenia might block Croatia’s acceptance into Schengen if Zagreb did not agree to implement the arbitration ruling on the two countries’ border dispute.

Speaking to the press after the South-East European Cooperation Process (SEECP) summit meeting in Slovenia, Cerar said the (Slovenian) government insisted that the refusal to implement the arbitration ruling was a violation of the rule of law, and that countries like that could not be accepted into the Schengen Area.” (N1)
