EU leaders say Croatia should join EU in June 2013
BRUSSELS — German Chancellor Angela Merkel said Friday that European leaders had agreed they want Croatia to become a member of the EU.

“We have agreed on accession for Croatia,” Merkel said at the conclusion of a two-day EU summit in Brussels.

Merkel says Croatia had significant gaps in March but those have been worked out, so there was no reason to delay accession.
