Bosnia and Herzegovina to submit EU application by June 30

The new central government of Bosnia and Herzegovina aims to meet all conditions set by the European Union over the next month and apply for membership by the end of June, Bosnian PM announced.

The move comes after Muslim, Serb and Croat leaders put an end to the political deadlock that stalled reforms needed for progress towards EU membership and left the economy floundering following an inconclusive election in October 2010.

“I expect that we shall fulfil conditions for submitting the application for EU membership by June 30,” Vjekoslav Bevanda, a Bosnian Croat economist who chairs the central cabinet known as the Council of Ministers, said in an interview yesterday (21 February).
