“Finally! Congratulations to the Croats, you are ready for the EU,” announces the daily. On March 26, the Commissioner for Enlargement, Štefan Füle, declared that Zagreb has fulfilled all of the conditions for its accession to the EU on July 1.

In contrast to Bulgaria and Romania, the two most recent countries to join the European Union, Croatia will not be subject to supervision of its institutions.
