The Embassy of the United States in Sarajevo said it rejects any rhetoric, be it from within or outside of Bosnia and Herzegovina, which encourages division and tensions in the country, in response to a request for comment N1 sent the embassy regarding recent statements by Hungary’s Prime Minister.

At a recent conference, Hungarian PM Viktor Orban argued that integrating Bosnia and its two million Muslims in the EU represents a challenge and a security issue.


“Offensive stereotypes have no place in political speech. Words have consequences, and such rhetoric only contributes to rising tensions, erosion of social cohesion and, ultimately, poses a threat to the security and stability of BiH, the Western Balkans and Europe,” the US Embassy told N1.
