Whisteblower website WikiLeaks has published another score of documents that detail American embassy’s take on Croatian-Slovenian relations, country’s new Prime Minister and a countryside wedding, amongst other things.
In documents sent to Washington from 1991 to 2011, American diplomats informed their headquarters about everything from Slovenian-Croatian border maritime dispute to a snapps-filled wedding in Djulovac where the mayor was marrying off his daughter.
Documents reveal the dispute over the maritime border - a part of land on the Istrian peninsula that would have allowed Slovenia direct access to international waters but would have forced Croatia to give up some of the sea it considers its own – was influenced by Slovenia's understanding of self as a "maritime nation" and Croatia's "inferiority complex" when it comes to its neighbours.
Four months into Prime Minister Jadranka Kosor’s mandate, Americans judged the new PM as "calculating but honest in her fight against corruption." They saw the country’s new president Ivo Josipovic as someone who would sustain this fight.
For the military operation Storm that ended the war in Croatia and reclaimed parts of Serb-occupied territories, Americans said it was less of a victorious feat and more a result of the Serb decision to withdraw, daily Jutarnji List writes.
