The United States will “once again be at the forefront of positive change on the international stage” and Bosnia will have “a great, proven friend in the White House,” the Croat member of Bosnia’s tripartite Presidency, Zeljko Komsic, said in his congratulatory message to Joe Biden.
“I would like to convey to you my most sincere congratulations, on my own behalf and on behalf of the citizens of Bosnia and Herzegovina, for assuming office as President of the United States of America,” Komsic said in his message, adding that he, as well as many Bosnian citizens, are happy about Biden starting his term.
“It is with great joy that I received the news of your victory in the elections, and today, together with a large number of citizens, I look forward to the beginning of your mandate, in which America will once again be at the forefront of positive change on the international stage and Bosnia and Herzegovina will have a great, proven friend in the White House,” he said.
“Encouraged by the start of your administration, we will make additional efforts to strengthen relations between our two countries, strengthen our alliance, and accelerate Bosnia and Herzegovina's path to a modern, civil state, in which everyone has equal rights regardless of religion or ethnicity, modelled after the United States,” he said.
Komsic wished Biden luck and great success, adding that he is convinced the new US President will “overcome all challenges” he will face.
