Croatia’s Prime Minister Ivo Sanader has described Slovenia's move to veto new talks for Zagreb to join the European Union as an action "without precedent."
"Croatia expects... that Slovenia will reconsider its decision," Sanader told journalists in Zagreb.
"If this doesn't happen, the Slovene government will show exclusivism that is not in line with the principles of good neighbourly ties, solidarity and unity," Sanader said, adding that the "blocking of 10 chapters . . . is a move without precedent in the history of the (EU) accession talks."
