Total Croatia News

ZAGREB, May 18, 2018 – The Croatian parliament on Friday ratified the European partnership treaty between the Croatian government and Bosnia and Herzegovina’s Council of Ministers, under which the two parties reaffirmed their determination to promote the European partnership and strengthen cooperation in the process of Bosnia and Herzegovina’s accession to the European Union.

The act ratifying the treaty was passed unanimously by 79 votes. The treaty was signed in Sarajevo in July last year and has already been ratified by the Bosnia and Herzegovina parliament.

“It is in Croatia’s interest to foster a high level of bilateral relations with Bosnia and Herzegovina with a view to strengthening its long-term stability and security, particularly through support for the Euro-Atlantic integration processes in the country,” Zdravka Bušić, State Secretary at the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs, said while presenting the treaty in parliament.

She said that this would also help in politically empowering the Croats in Bosnia and Herzegovina as one of the country’s three constituent nations.
