Schengen ambitions: Croatia dreams of end to long lines at the EU border

Nearly 10 years after joining the EU, Croatia aims to join the Schengen group of EU members with open internal borders.

With EU help, and the EPP-led Croatian government, the country has bolstered its border police force to stop cross-border crime and smuggling of migrants
