By bne IntelliNews May 27, 2010
The United States support Croatia's candidacy for the EU membership, as well as the country's cooperation with the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY), vice president, Joe Biden, said. He stressed that the US welcomed the reforms, which the government was trying to implement, as well as the fight against corruption. We note that the European Commission submitted its draft negotiation position on the judiciary and fundamental rights policy chapter. The position was forwarded to the Council of the European Union. The EU member states had to endorse the position before the opening of the policy chapter. The important role in the endorsement by the countries will play the assessment of Croatia's cooperation with the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) by the tribunal's chief prosecutor. The judiciary and fundamental rights was one of the three chapters, which have not been opened by the country yet. The country expects to open the policy chapter by end-July.
