FM Zaharieva Glad to See Croatian EU Presidency Continue Focusing on Western Balkans

FM Zaharieva Glad to See Croatian EU Presidency Continue Focusing on Western Balkans

18.10.2019
October 18 (BTA) - Foreign Minister Ekaterina Zaharieva, who is paying an official visit to Croatia, told her Croatian counterpart Gordan Grlic Radman here on Friday that Bulgaria welcomes the fact that the Western Balkans have been placed among the priorities of the Croatian EU Council Presidency, which will be held in the first half of 2020. Zaharieva also expressed satisfaction that a summit focusing on the region, like the one held in Sofia during the Bulgarian EU Presidency in the first half of 2018, will be organized, the Bulgarian Foreign Ministry reported. "Our priorities focus on connectivity, growth, protecting European citizens and security, migration and enlargement, of course. We hope that the May 7 summit in Zagreb next year will be successful and would like for you to help us with the experience from your (EU) Presidency," Croatia's Foreign Minister said. "We will coordinate your (EU) Council Presidency and our joint Berlin Process Presidency with the Republic of North Macedonia," Zaharieva noted. The two countries' top diplomats expressed their discontent over the fact that the EU Summit failed to reach consensus about the start of EU accession negotiations with North Macedonia and Albania. There is room for growth in trade and economic relations. Bilateral trade stood at 281 million euro, despite the two countries' proximity, although this was a 45 per cent increase compared to 2017. The two ministers expressed confidence that there is potential for much higher achievements between their countries. "We must work on improving connectivity. Business contacts and tourists will increase if we have direct flights and develop Corridor 7 under the Danube Strategy, because our countries currently have to transport goods to each other through non-EU countries," Zaharieva said. Croatia is a popular tourist destination for Bulgarians. A total of 36,222 Bulgarians visited Croatia in 2018, compared to 22,322 Croatians visiting Bulgaria in the same year. Grlic agreed with Zaharieva, adding that efforts must be focused on attracting air carriers' interest in this route. The two ministers said they will work together on their countries joining Schengen, the eurozone and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development. Zaharieva noted that there now two foreign ministers fluent in Bulgarian after Grlic Ramadan's appointment to the post. (Croatia's Foreign Minister has worked at his country's embassy in Sofia 25 years ago, but still speaks Bulgarian without an accent). "I believe our two countries have actually invented free trade when (Bulgarian) Tsar Ivan Asen II issued (in 1230 AD) the Dubrovnik Charter, granting Dubrovnik merchants the privilege of free trade across Bulgaria," Zaharieva said. During her visit, the Bulgarian top diplomat also conferred with the Speaker of the Croatian Parliament, Gordan Jandrokovic, and representatives of the Bulgarian community there.
