The situation in Bosnia is “more worrying than ever” and the European Union clearly stated it will not accept a dissolution of the country, EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Josep Borrell, said at the Munich Security Conference.

“The situation in Bosnia is certainly worrying, more worrying than ever. It’s never been easy, but now there are really centrifugal forces to be found,” Borrell said.

He said that Bosnia’s political leaders must reach an agreement to implement constitutional and other reforms in order to avoid discrimination in the country and continue its EU integration process.

The process of constitutional and electoral reform in BiH “will be a long one,” he said.

“I can only appeal to the responsibility of the political leaders in BiH to implement the reforms and I can assure you that we are in close coordination with the US, also concerning Serbia,” he said.

“We issued a serious warning, we will not accept the dissolution of this republic,” Borrell stressed.
