Croatian President Zoran Milanovic on Thursday again urged the European Union to grant membership candidate status to Bosnia and Herzegovina.

EU leaders are meeting in Brussels on Thursday for a two-day summit to decide on the membership candidate status for Ukraine and Moldova, for which there is widespread support.

Milanovic on Thursday requested the same status for Bosnia and Herzegovina. He has Slovenian President Borut Pahor's strong support for this, and Austria has also joined the initiative.

“We have heard from all member states that Ukraine will get the candidate status, which is fine, but Ukraine, just like Moldova, has some huge problems,” Milanovic said.

“This is an opportunity to grant Bosnia and Herzegovina the candidate status, as an act of confidence and hope,” the Croatian president said, adding that he could not see how anyone could be against it.
