Council of EU welcomes Croatias membership progress.

By bne IntelliNews December 13, 2012
The European Union's General Affairs Council welcomed Croatias progress toward EU membership, especially in adopting and implementing relevant legislation and in completing its alignment with the acquis, the Council said in its conclusions from a meeting held earlier this week. It noted that Croatia has achieved substantial results in a number of areas but the country has to continue working on the ten key issues in the fields of competition policy, judiciary and fundamental rights, and justice, freedom and security, which the EC identifies in the monitoring report on Croatia's state of preparedness for membership. The Council said that Croatia should continue to play an active role in the Western Balkans regional cooperation, underlining that bilateral issues should not impede the accession process of candidate countries. Croatia is expected to become an EU member on July 1, 2013.
