EU urges Bosnia leaders to resolve ethnic rift

Bosnia’s constitution allows only members of its three main ethnic communities, Muslims, Croats and Serbs, to run for parliament or the tripartite presidency. The country can come closer to EU and NATO if it overcomes their ethnic divisions, said Britain’s Foreign Secretary William Hague after meeting Bosnian Prime Minister Vjekoslav Bevanda, Fars news agency reported. Hague made it clear that Bosnia can only be a member of the EU as a single, sovereign state. Referring hard-line Bosnian Serb leader Milorad Dodik, Hague said, “Those who think there is another way for Bosnia are wrong, and those who undermine the Bosnian state will not be our partners”.
