Slovenia welcomes arbitral tribunal's decision

Slovenian Prime Minister Miro Cerar welcomes the decision by the Permanent Court of Arbitration to continue with arbitration proceedings in the Croatian-Slovenian border dispute, Cerar's office said in a statement.

Slovenia will continue supporting the arbitration proceedings and the arbitral tribunal in charge of the dispute, and it believes that it can pass "a just, final and binding" ruling in the long-lasting dispute between the two countries, said Cerar.

"Slovenia will respect that decision and it expects the same of Croatia," Cerar said in the statement, adding that the unresolved dispute had burdened relations between the two countries and their citizens ever since the two countries declared independence and that it had to be resolved.

Slovenian President Borut Pahor, too, was satisfied with the latest decision of the Permanent Court of Arbitration.

As Slovenia's prime minister in 2009, Pahor and the then Croatian Prime Minister Jadranka Kosor signed an agreement on international arbitration in the border dispute.
