Croatia PM Off To Norway To Collect Nobel Peace Prize

Croatia’s Prime Minister Zoran Milanovic flies to Oslo in Norway today to take part in the presentation of the Nobel Peace Prize which was won this year by the European Union.

 Milanovic will join 20 European leaders as the Union’s most powerful three men, European Council President Herman van Rompuy, European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso and European Parliament President Martin Schulz collect the 1.2 million euro prize on behalf of the European Union’s 500 million citizens today.

Ironically the presentation will take place in Norway, a European country who twice rejected referendums, in 1972 and 1994, to join the European Union and is not a member. Norway’s politicians heavily criticised the award going to the European Union.
