US Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, arrived in Sarajevo on Monday at the start of a visit to Bosnia, Serbia, Kosovo, Croatia and Albania. In Bosnia Mrs Clinton, and the EU's Foreign Affairs High Representative, Catherine Ashton, urged Bosnia to move faster on reforms that will enable the country to join NATO and the EU.
According to a report in Balkan Insights Hillary Clinton said that Bosnian leaders should overcome their differences and resolve problems in order for the country to join the NATO and the European Union, warning that Bosnia risks lagging behind the region. “We are here to tell your politicians to put differences aside,” Clinton said, “Our goals are the same... we want to see Bosnia moving forward,” she added.
After Bosnia, Clinton and Ashton fly to Serbia and later that day to Kosovo, where they will stress support for the EU-led dialogue between Serbia and Kosovo. Read the whole report from Balkan Insight here.
