BRUSSELS - Croatia cleared a crucial hurdle on its path to European Union membership on Friday, with the EU executive recommending that its accession talks be finalized and an entry date set for mid-2013.

"This paves the way for Croatia to join the EU as the 28th member state as of July 1, 2013," he said.
