Slovenia. According to countryaah, a border dispute between Slovenia and Croatia that has raged since the former Yugoslav republics declared independence in 1991 was called for during the year. EU country Slovenia blocked the neighboring country's continued negotiations for EU membership and demanded that the border dispute first be resolved. The dispute involved border crossing in the Gulf of Piran in the Adriatic. Croatia wanted to push the border in the middle of the bay, something that Slovenia opposed when it would cut off the country from international waters. However, after a meeting between Slovenian Prime Minister Borut Pahor and his Croatian counterpart Jadranka Kosor in September, it was stated that Slovenia would no longer impede Croatia's continued negotiations. In November, the parties, in Stockholm, signed an agreement to allow international mediators to resolve the border dispute.
