Arrival of Prime Minister of Serbia Aleksandar Vucic to Sarajevo is an important step for the development of the Serb-Bosniak dialogue, says Foreign Minister of BiH Igor Crnadak. Vucic’s arrival in Sarajevo at this time is very important for the development of relations between BiH and Serbia, adds Crnadak.
“I am confident that Vucic’s visit will be in a completely quiet, safe and positive atmosphere. I expect to have a double effect related to the relations between BiH and Serbia and that it will be executed through the Prime Ministers’ Conference. All of this should contribute to the quality of the preparation of the region for conference in Trieste,” said Crnadak.
He stresses the importance of the candidacy of the current Prime Minister of Serbia for Presidency and his arrival to Sarajevo after a meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel on which, according to Crnadak, there was talk about the Western Balkans and Bosnia and Herzegovina.
“I see all the happenings as good and positive signals for everyone in BiH. We should contribute to the strengthening of mutual trust and look to the future together. The priority of Serbia is to preserve stability, lasting peace and economic development for the entire region. I think Vucic will confirm once again the commitment of Serbia for a peaceful and successful BiH”, said the Minister of Foreign Affairs.
