Bosnia's Foreign Minister: Incumbent government will not discuss Kosovo or MAP Izvor: N1

Bosnia's Foreign Minister Igor Crnadak said, on Tuesday, he is convinced the incumbent Council of Ministers will neither recognise Kosovo's independence nor decide on Bosnia's Membership Action Plan (MAP) for NATO.

“We didn't want to discuss Kosovo's independence in the past four years, while I was in office, and we will not recognise it because the other two ministers coming from the Serb-dominated Republika Srpska entity are also against it,” Crnadak said.

Their position regarding the MAP will not change either, he noted.

“Despite the Presidency's unanimous decision from 2009, the position of RS politicians is clear, and it won't change regardless of what was said during Monday's meeting in Berlin. The position is that once formed, the newly elected Council of Ministers will discuss whether the MAP will be activated or not,” the Foreign Minister said.

He noted that that the Berlin meeting and the Franco-German engagement is an encouraging signal for the entire region.

"I hope the approach to resolving the relations between Belgrade and Pristina will intensify in the coming period, and that it will give Bosnia an additional European incentive," Crnadak said.
