Statement on Croatia Adopted, Referendum Still Possible

Ljubljana, 18 February - In an attempt to avert a referendum on Croatia's NATO accession, parliament adopted on Wednesday a statement that "rejects all Croatia's regulations that violate Slovenia's territorial integrity". One of the proponents of the referendum nonetheless signaled it would push ahead with referendum proceedings.
