The European Commission is ready to provide additional financial and technical support to Bosnia, in tackling the migrant crisis, Bosnia's Security Ministry Dragan Mektic said Wednesday after visiting Brussels.

The Ministry's delegation led by Mektic stayed in an official visit to the European Commission where the Minister met with Commission representatives for neighbourhood and expansion negotiations and talked about the security and humanitarian situation caused by the migrant influx into the country.

He informed them about the situation in the country, especially the situation in the north-westernmost Una-Sana Canton where migrants have been flocking ever since the “Balkan migrant route” was cut off by the placement of hard border in Bulgaria and Hungary.

Ever since then, thousands of migrants entered Bosnia from Serbia and Montenegro and heading to Velika Kladusa and Bihac, regional centres closest to the border with Croatia. Their main goal is crossing the border and entering the EU where they plan to go to countries like Germany, Italy and France in search of a better life.

Interlocutors concluded that the meeting was useful and the European Commission thanked Bosnia for everything it has done so far in tackling the crisis.

They concluded that cooperation between international organisations working in Bosnia and the local authorities are of extreme importance for treating the migrants in line with international law.

The next meeting will be held in Sarajevo, in early September.
