EU wants Serbia to have a positive stance on Bosnia

Head of the European Commission (EC) mission to Serbia Ambassador Vincent Degert on Saturday urged Belgrade to shoulder its responsibilities as partner to the EU in solving the political standoff in Bosnia-Herzegovina.

He said that the EU expects Serbia to play a positive role in solving the crisis triggered by the hard-line Serb leaders in the former Yugoslav republic.

Degert urged Serbia to apply pressures on the Bosnian Serbs who seek to undermine the sovereignty of the state of Bosnia-Herzegovina through their plans to hold a controversial referendum on the State Court and Prosecutor’s Office.

Degert reaffirmed the EU opposition to any infringement on the sovereignty of the Federation of Bosnia-Herzegovina, noting that the planned referendum risks pushing Bosnia towards crisis a new showdown between the Serbs on one hand and Bosnians and Croats on the other.
