Kukan: Slovakia will help Croatia join EU

SLOVAKIA is supporting Croatia in its bid to join the European Union, according to the TASR news service.

Slovakia's Foreign Affairs Minister, Eduard Kukan, said on February 14 at a meeting with Croatia's Minister of European Integration, Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic, that Slovakia is ready to share its experience of the accession process with Croatia.

Kukan also said he was convinced that Croatia's EU-accession, due to start on March 17, will advance in accordance with the country's stabilization.

Foreign Minister Kukan pointed out that during the EU summit in December 2004 Slovakia agreed with the European Commission's report concerning Croatia's progress in fulfilling criteria needed for EU membership.
