Tajani pushing for Croatia to join Schengen Area as soon as possible
Zagreb - European Parliament President Antonio Tajani said in Zagreb on Friday that he would support Croatia's accession to the Schengen Area as soon as possible in light of threats facing the European Union.

I can confirm that I will certainly help so that Croatia can achieve that goal as soon as possible, Tajani told reporters after meeting with Parliament Speaker Gordan Jandroković. This was Tajani's first official visit to Croatia since taking office.

Jandroković said the talks focused on Croatia's future membership of the Schengen Area. "I'm very glad that President Tajani has extended his support to Croatia to join the Schengen system as soon as possible."

The two officials agreed that stability was very important, of the EU member states, in Southeast Europe and the Mediterranean region.

The EU is facing big challenges - high youth unemployment, the threat of terrorism, the migrant wave. It's very important that we all work together on the stability of the EU and on political stability. That's why it's very important that Croatia, as a member of the EU, retain strong political stability, said Tajani.
