Ljubljana, 26 May - The coalition and opposition ended nine hours of debate on the border arbitration agreement in parliament Wednesday just as divided as at the start. While the government was convinced it had provided all the arguments to dispel doubts, including on a unilateral statement by Croatia, the opposition complained that it got no answers to its questions.
