Country starts talks with neighbours on Adriatic fishing zone. European integration minister Kolinda Grabar Kitarovic and EU enlargement commissioner Olli Rehn confirmed that the country was holding talks with neighbours on the Ecological and Fisheries Protection Zone (EFPZ) in the Adriatic . The decision to establish the zone has passed through the parliament but its activation was delayed due to the protests of Slovenia and Italy . Rehn said he was confident the talks would bring results and would prevent unilateral decision making on any side. Earlier, the EC warned Croatia against making unilateral moves as regards EFPZ. The government insisted it would activate the zone as it was the country’s right to do it.
