SPLIT, Croatia, March 4 (Xinhua) -- Two new patrol ships were committed to the Croatian maritime police in the port of Split, the second biggest city of the country, on Monday as part of the EU's "Blue Border Surveillance" program for Croatia.

Paul Vandoren, head of the European Union Delegation to Croatia, said the EU had concluded that Croatia had already achieved the police fleet planned prior to its EU accession set for July 1, 2013.

The commitment of the two new vessels was a step further in meeting the European standards and strengthening of the common European security, he said.

Croatian Interior Minister Ranko Ostojic said that border surveillance and controls of the future exterior border of the EU was one of the ministry's top priorities, adding that Croatia would be a responsible minder of its borders.

The two vessels are valued 4.28 million euros, of which 75 percent was financed by EU.
