The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe praised Croatia’s progress in rehabilitating ethnic Serb refugees and its judicial reforms, key to its bid to join the European Union. “In the refugees problem, we have advanced very much,” said OSCE chief of mission in Croatia Jorge Fuentes, while presenting an annual report. He said the OSCE mission here could close shortly. OSCE chairman, Spanish Foreign Minister Miguel Angel Moratinos, earlier this month said he supported winding up the mission in Croatia by the end of this year. The future of the mission will be decided by the OSCE ministerial council in November. (AFP)
