Klaus Kinkel was an honorable politician who, with all his heart, was committed to establishing bonds and bridges between people in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) and working together for the benefit of the whole and unique city of Mostar.

Kinkel was committed to the establishment of peace in Mostar, which was also a test for the success of the Federation of BiH. Namely, things were clear – without success in Mostar, there would be no realization of the Federation of BiH, and without that, the Dayton Accords.

On July 23rd, 1994, the First President of the Presidency of the Republic of BiH, Alija Izetbegovic, the President of Croatia Franjo Tudjman, and mayors of the eastern and western part of Mostar, Safet Oručevic and Mijo Brajkovic, together with Kinel, crossed the chain bridge in Mostar.

On this occasion, the delegations also walked to the old part of Mostar, and an immediate meeting with journalists and numerous citizens was carried out in Koski Mehmed Pasha mosque in the vicinity of the bridge.

Many people still remember Kinkel’s words at a press conference in Sarajevo, where he said that Mostar certainly needs to be a unique city, as advocated by EU administrator, Hans Koschnick.

“In order to calm the situation in that city, I will engage myself, in cooperation with the US Secretary of State, Warren Christopher. ”

As the German Foreign Minister, he first proposed the formation of a court to deal with war crimes in the former Yugoslavia, followed by the formation of the Hague Tribunal, Vijesti.ba news portal reports.

In the photo gallery, you can see the exclusive photos of Mostar on July 23, 1994, which was given to Vijesti.ba news portal by the Center for Peace and Multiethnic Cooperation from Mostar.
