The Head of the European Union Delegation to Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) Ambassador Lars-Gunnar Wigemark, said that he does not consider that BiH is an unstable country and that this is his personal attitude.
Wigemark added that he could not comment on the allegations made by Croatian President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic, an EU member state, or by any official from member states.
“In BiH, you have a significant international presence, including EUFOR under Operation Altea, as well as many other international organizations, but that does not mean that the country itself is weak,” Wigemark explained.
President of Croatia Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic said during a meeting with Israeli President Reuven Rivlin on Tuesday that Bosnia and Herzegovina is a very unstable country and has been taken over by people affiliated with Iran and terrorist organizations in some respect, Croatian Index.hr portal reported.
“The country is now under the control of militant Islam, which is dominant in determining attitudes,” Grabar-Kitarovic said.
She estimated that Croatia was suffering from a migrant problem, which was not quite similar to the one in Europe.
Although almost everyone claims to be Syrian refugees, they are mostly African or Pakistani migrants trying to break through the border from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Grabar-Kitarovic said.
