Croatia signs EU accession treaty

AFP, Friday 9 Dec 2011

Croatia signed an EU accession treaty Friday, a move paving the way for the former Yugoslav republic to join the bloc in mid-2013, after almost a decade of long and often fraught negotiations.

The signing ceremony attended by European Union leaders was the culmination of a long-held ambition, but comes at a tough moment as Europe's debt crisis splits the bloc and saps the enthusiasm of ordinary Croatians.
