Croatian Foreign and European Affairs Minister Gordan Grlic Radman met with the Secretary-General of the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), Angel Gurria, in Paris on Thursday, for talks on Croatia's accession to that organisation, the Foreign and European Affairs Ministry said.

Croatia's accession is being blocked by Slovenia because Zagreb is refusing to implement an international arbitration ruling on the two countries' border.

Until recently, the country's accession was blocked by Hungary which claimed that Zagreb was not honouring a decision by an international arbitral tribunal in the INA-MOL case. Budapest has in the meantime lifted its blockade.

Also, OECD members have still not agreed on further enlargement, and decisions on further enlargement are made by consensus.

Gurria commended Croatia's commitment to drawing closer to OECD membership by intensifying its participation in various working bodies and accessing OECD instruments.

"Croatia has been working with commitment to meeting the criteria for OECD membership, which is very useful for development and reform implementation, and that is one of our most important national priorities," said Grlic Radman.

After the meeting with Gurria, Grlic Radman also took part in an OECD forum on migrations and integration challenges.

The OECD is an international economic organisation that brings together 36 more developed countries.
