BiH Presidency Chairman Zeljko Komsic met with Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Gabriel Escobar on Monday,
Apart from the Croat member of the tripartite Presidency, Escobar will meet with the Bosniak member Sefik Dzaferovic as well as the Serb member, Milorad Dodik.
“The US believes that EU’s expansion to the Western Balkans is a priority not just for us but for the EU as well,” Komsic said after the meeting.
“Considering that everyone agrees there is a great capacity for the economic growth of the region, we also touched upon crime and corruption which are widespread across the region as well as BiH. For this approach we will always have the US’ support,” Komsic added.
He noted that they neither spoke about the Election Law nor any kind of sanctions.
“It is my impression that the US envoy, who obviously has the support of higher levels for everything he touches upon, has a very clear image of the situation on the ground,” the Croat Presidency member concluded.
The US Envoy will also meet with the leadership of the state and Federation (FbiH) entity parliament leadership.
Escobar arrived in Sarajevo on Sunday, when he first met with the US Ambassador to BiH Eric Nelson. He also met with youth activists and business leaders.
