The decision on the border dispute between Croatia and Slovenia is certain to cause stress in the relations between the two countries.

The decision on the border dispute between Croatia and Slovenia will be announced on June the 29th, 2017, confirmed today the Permanent Court of Arbitration at The Hague, reports Večernji List on June the 19th, 2017.

The announcement of the decision will be public, will last from 14:00 to 16:00, and the decision will be read by the President of the Court, Gilbert Guillaume.

While Croatia remains steadfast in its position that the arbitration proceedings and the agreement are no longer valid, after the arbitration was irreversibly contaminated when it was revealed two years ago that Slovenian arbitrator Jernej Sekolec and Slovenian representative Simona Drenik were in collusion and planned to influence other arbitrators, Slovenia insists that Croatia must respect the arbitration decision.

Slovenia, after initially denying the inadmissible acts, later dismissed Drenik, while Sekolec resigned. The Permanent Court of Arbitration confirmed last year's decision that there was a violation of the procedure by Slovenia but decided that the proceedings could go on.

On Sunday, Slovenian Foreign Minister and Deputy Prime Minister Karl Erjavec said that Slovenia was intensively preparing for the arbitration ruling in its border dispute with Croatia, adding that he expected Croatia would also have to accept it “sooner or later.”
