ZAGREB, February 16, 2018 – Presidents Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović of Croatia and Aleksandar Vučić of Serbia will meet with the three members of the Bosnian Presidency, Dragan Čović, Mladen Ivanić and Bakir Izetbegović, in Mostar on March 6 or 7, Presidency Chair Čović said on Friday.
The meeting is a contribution to resolving the problems between the countries in the region and their progress on the European Union journey, he said.
“I will insist that we neighbours have the best relations possible… Expectations of such meetings are relatively big, although we know there are many outstanding issues.”
He said European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker recently “asked that we start resolving those problems immediately. Only talks can enable us to make use of that European journey and that is a big incentive and opportunity for Bosnia and Herzegovina.”
Čović said Juncker, European Council President Donald Tusk and EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini would visit Bosnia on February 28 when Bosnia will hand over its answers to the Commission’s Questionnaire.
