The United States congratulates the people of Slovenia on the ratification of the Border Arbitration Agreement with Croatia by referendum on June 6. By cementing this agreement, the people of Slovenia have helped move the region closer to full European integration. We commend the leaders and governments of Croatia and Slovenia for resolving to settle their disagreements and agreeing to arbitration in the spirit of good neighborly relations. We believe that the arbitration agreement is good for Slovenia, good for Croatia and good for the entire region.
