ZAGREB – New Croatian Minister of Foreign and European Affairs Marija Pejčinović Burić has said she would “also continue to work on solving open issues with Serbia”, Tanjug reports.
“Serbia is the other country in our neighbourhood (besides Bosnia and Herzegovina) with which we have a considerable number of open issues, from the border and missing persons to the issue of (war crimes) jurisdiction, which they have, and which we do not recognise, etc. I think that a resolution of open issues needs to begin,” she told the Croatian national television.
Work on solving the border issue will continue soon, the Hina news agency quoted Pejčinović Burić as saying.
“We will soon set up a commission on the border… We think the time has now come to start discussing this issue again. Solving the issues of missing persons is important to us,” Pejčinović Burić said.
