European Commissioner for Neighbourhood and Enlargement, Oliver Varhelyi, tweeted on Wednesday that he had a “promising discussion” with the three members of Bosnia’s Presidency and welcomed their “commitment” to implement priorities the European Commission defined for Bosnia to tackle on its path toward European Union candidate status.
Sefik Dzaferovic, Milorad Dodik and Zeljko Komsic met with Varhelyi, European Parliament President, David Sassoli, and EU High Representative, Josep Borrell, in Brussels to discuss Bosnia’s progress on the country's path towards EU membership.
In May last year, the European Commission adopted its Opinion on Bosnia and Herzegovina’s EU membership application in which it determined 14 key priorities for the country to fulfil in order to be recommended for initiating EU accession talks.
“Promising discussion w Presidency of Bosnia &Herzegovina, Sefik Dzaferovic, Milorad Dodik, Zeljko Komsic, in Brussels today. Welcome their commitment to implement 14 key priorities w determination so BiH swiftly advances towards candidate status. I count on them to deliver!” Varhelyi tweeted.
