PM: Schengen A Priority For Croatia

Croatia’s first aim upon entering the European Union will be to enter the Schengen Area, said the nation’s Prime Minister Zoran Milanovic from Brussels on Friday.

Milanovic was attending the EU summit, at which discussion surrounding the establishment of a banking union was at the forefront.

“Our primary goal is to enter Schengen as soon as possible to facilitate free movement,” said Milanovic, who also gave away during his statement that the banking union looks like Croatia’s destiny.

“The vast majority of countries will join the banking union. Let’s wait until we join the EU, but we are considering all these options,” the PM said, adding that Croatia will lose a part of its sovereignty when it joins the union.
