Montenegro, Croatia clash over navy training ship

TIVAT, Montenegro (AP) — Montenegro and Croatia have resolved almost all of their differences more than two decades after fighting a war, except for one: a dispute over an 85-year-old former Royal Yugoslav Navy training ship.

The majestic sailing vessel called Jadran, or the Adriatic, is currently part of the Montenegrin naval fleet based in the port of Tivat.

Croatia is demanding the return of the tall ship, which Montenegro adamantly refuses to do.

Before the war between the two Adriatic Sea neighbors, the 60-meter (200-foot) white vessel with three masts was docked in the Croatian port of Split before it was moved to Montenegro in 1990 for repairs.

Croatia says its home port has always been Split, thus it must be returned after it was “illegally” taken.
