ZAGREB, Dec 8, 2020 – Foreign and European Affairs Minister Gordan Grlic Radman said on Tuesday that the Dayton peace agreement should be amended to ensure equality and a constituent status for all of the country’s three peoples as well as other citizens.

“The Dayton agreement has been transformed beyond recognition, we have been warning about it at NATO and EU meetings and now that we are members of those organisations, our voice is heard much better,” Grlic Radman said in a reply to MP Marijana Petir’s question while submitting a report on the implementation of the Declaration on the status of the Croat people in Bosnia and Herzegovina in 2019.

“Croatia cannot interfere in other countries’ internal affairs, but we are following the situation and using EU and NATO mechanisms to point to the existing asymmetries and anomalies,” Grlic Radman told HDZ MP Rade Simicevic who asked what the Croatian government was doing to enable Croats to elect their political representatives the way Serbs and Bosniaks did.

“We are listening to what Croats in Bosnia and Herzegovina are saying, if they are dissatisfied, we are conveying their dissatisfaction, that is Croatia’s role as a signatory to the Dayton agreement,” he said, dismissing criticism from opposition Bridge and Sovereignists MPs that Croatia was not doing enough for Croats in the neighbouring country.
