Slovenia – Croatia Border Arbitration Decision

June 29, 2017

We are aware of the decision issued by the Permanent Court of Arbitration (PCA) on the instruction of the Arbitral Tribunal in the arbitration between the Republic of Croatia and the Republic of Slovenia.

We have made clear to both Slovenia and Croatia that we are not taking sides in this dispute.  It is up to the governments of these two countries, both EU members and NATO allies, to resolve this bilateral issue, and we are confident they can do so. We urge both sides to work expeditiously for a resolution.
