EC president Barroso congratulates Kosor on becoming Croatia's PM



ZAGREB, July 10 (Hina) - European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso on Thursday sent a letter to Jadranka Kosor, congratulating her on becoming Croatia's prime minister.

Barroso also expressed the European Commission readiness to help Croatia overcome a halt in its EU entry talks.

Croatia made great progress on its EU path and we wish Zagreb a lot of success in overcoming the blockade of its EU entry talks. If both sides want that, we are prepared to help, in the spirit of good neighbourly relations, Barroso said.

He said Croatia must continue implementing reforms, strengthen administrative and institutional capacities, intensify the fight against crime and corruption and fully cooperate with the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia.
