EU foreign ministers, as well as senior officials from the EU, U.S. and Russia will be attending the EU-Western Balkans conference on June 2 in Sarajevo.

The information was confirmed by the Bosnia-Herzegovina Foreign Ministry.

The conference will be a chance for talks to be held regarding the progress of every regional country on its road to EU integration, and to discuss structural, political and economic reforms on that road, the statement added.
