BiH can overcome the current crisis

“Bosnia and Herzegovina is facing a serious crisis. Political stakeholders in the country, in particular the RS leadership, have the responsibility to de-escalate the current political tensions, particularly by desisting from attempted rollbacks and other actions aimed at undermining and destabilizing the State, ending the blockade of State-level and FBiH institutions, adopting zero tolerance for divisive and hateful rhetoric, and resuming the work necessary to advance much needed reforms, all of which are necessary if BiH is to move down the EU path,” High Representative Christian Schmidt said today during the meeting with the BiH Minister of Foreign Affairs Bisera Turkovic.

High Representative emphasized the firm commitment of the international community to BiH’s sovereignty, territorial integrity and path to becoming a vibrant, democratic and prosperous country.
