EU officials say Bosnia is closer to EU membership

Bosnian and EU officials met in Sarajevo on Tuesday and concluded that Bosnia is getting closer to EU membership.

The Bosnian Prime Minister, Vjekoslav Bevanda, said that the implementation of the Sejdic – Finci ruling, one of the preconditions for the start of EU accession talks, is a matter of political consensus which should be achieved soon.

“We all know it is in the domain of a political decision and I hope that the leaders of the six ruling parties will reach that decision at their meeting on May 23,” Bevanda said referring to the high-level political meeting to be held in Sarajevo on Wednesday.
