One year ago, the presidents of Croatia and Serbia – Kolinda Grabar Kitarović and Aleksandar Vučić have met in Zagreb and agreed that the two countries will try to solve the border dispute in two years. In case of failure, the countries would turn to international court.

The two countries are still nowhere near a solution. Though Serbs say there was  some progress in resolving the land broder, they are still in disagreement with Croats over the border on the Danube river. In a recent interview with Tanjug news agency, the state secretary in the Serbian ministry of foreign affairs Nemanja Stevanović said that “major obstacles to reaching an agreement between the countries are different positions on the issues of Island of Vukovar and Island of Šarengrad on the Danube river”. He added that Croatian position on these issues is completely contrary to the international law. The Croatian ministry of foreign affairs, however, dismissed this claim, stating the border between the countries is in line with cadastre and that it has been approved in an official opinion of the Badinter Commission.
