In talks with Oliver Varhelyi, the EU's top official in charge of enlargement and neighbourhood policy, Dzaferovic said that in the times of the coronavirus pandemics Bosnia is in need of medical equipment, primarily ventilators, testers and protective gear.

“We will inform the European Commission that we accept their aid,” Dzaferovic told BHRT.

According to the Presidency chairman, the citizens are acting responsibly in this current state of crisis.

“I call on the citizens of Bosnia and Herzegovina abroad not to travel to Bosnia and Herzegovina except in case of high urgency, to stay where they are and to overcome together the difficult moment, because otherwise, they would put in jeopardy both our citizens and themselves,” said Dzaferovic, urging all citizens to obey the measures introduced to tackle the coronavirus threat.
