Zagreb Mayor Ribs Slovenes – “You Can Come Swim In Our Lakes”

Zagreb Mayor Milan Bandic has added his two cents worth into the current war of words between Slovenia’s Foreign Affairs Minister and the Mayor of Croatian city Rijeka.

“Dear friends (Slovenes), we don’t have a sea, but we have Bundek and Jarun (Lakes) so you can come here to swim,” quipped Bandic, alluding to a recent comment made on social network Twitter by Rijeka’s Mayor Vojko Obersnel.

Obersnel vented his anger after Slovenia’s Minister of Foreign Affairs said that Croatia’s entry into the EU on 1 July was in doubt. “If we don’t enter the EU, then you won’t enter the Adriatic”, wrote Obersnel.
