Bosniak candidate for the state Presidency of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Sefik Dzaferovic, harshly condemned Croatian President, Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic, for discussing the internal Bosnia's issues with international officials.

“Kolinda-Grabar Kitarovic is again wasting her time and diplomatic credibility of the Republic of Croatia by delegating the internal matters of Bosnia and Herzegovina on the agenda of meetings with international officials, especially by lobbying for particular political interests related to the electoral legislation,” said Dzaferovic.

The Croatian president met Russian Foreign Minister, Sergey Lavrov, and UN Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres, on the sidelines of the 73rd session of the UN General Assembly, discussing among other things the electoral reform in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Bosnia is an independent and sovereign country, and as such, it independently passes decisions referring to internal matters, stressed Dzaferovic.

“The status of the Republic of Croatia as a party in the Dayton Peace Agreement does not give right and option to its political officials to affect the adoption and content of those decisions. So, they should finally stop interfering with internal matters of Bosnia and Herzegovina,” he added.

Dzaferovic is a Bosniak representative, who will run in Bosnia's election for the post of Bosniak member of the state tripartite presidency.
