The Chairman of the Presidency of Bosnia and Herzegovina Zeljko Komsic will pay a visit to the United Kingdom on September 10th.
This news was confirmed by Komsic to N1 television on Tuesday.
During the visit, Komsic will also attend a service at Westminster Cathedral in honor of former High Representative of the International Community in BiH, Lord Paddy Ashdown, who passed away late last year.
A fierce opponent of the West’s watch-and-see policy towards the 1992-5 war in Bosnia and Herzegovina, unusually for a senior Western politician, he insisted on flying to Sarajevo in 1992 and seeing what was going in the besieged city himself.
There, in December 1992, he called for air strikes against the Bosnian Serbs. “We will not allow Sarajevo to fall to Serbia in a final act of aggression,” he said.
