Bakir Izetbegovic, one of the participants of the political talks on electoral reform in Bosnia and Herzegovina held on Thursday, said the talks are the “hardest work given to human being” adding that the main goal is saving the country from destabilisation.

“It would be the easiest for us to go to the voters and say we haven't achieved anything and blame the other side, but we are trying to save this country from destabilisation,” Izetbegovic told the reporters after the meeting held in Sarajevo.

He refused to give any details of the talks, noting that this would reduce a chance of reaching a solution.

“I am sorry that I can't present details because every detail is inflated like a balloon. I am asking media too, we don't need a crisis, stand with us and help us find a solution. Everyone needs to give in a bit,” Izetbegovic added. 

Thursday meeting comes days after the latest round of talks on electoral reform mediated by the US and European Union yielded no result.

Izetbegovic, who is the leader of the largest, dominantly Bosniak party – the SDA, announced that “the Bosniak side” will resume the work during the weekend, adding that he expects the foreigners to mediate the talks and help each side to reach a solution.

“We better find a solution that will stabilise the relations, the one that will untie the knot between the Croats and Bosniaks. The elections will take place but what kind of elections? With some boycott? We don't want to come into such situation,” he added.
