Embassies of the United States, United Kingdom, France, Germany, and Italy issued a joint statement on the latest political developments in the country and proposals by political leaders to dismiss the Sarajevo Canton Government.
“Following recent proposals by political leaders to replace the government in Sarajevo Canton, we reaffirm that our commitment is to the citizens of Bosnia-Herzegovina and reforms that support them, not to any political party or grouping. Politics and politicians should be judged according to how they respond to the citizens’ demands for better government, economic reforms, the fight against corruption and the enjoyment of human rights,” was stated in the statement.
The embassies added that they have found over the last 12 months that the coalition government had a clear and positive vision of how to improve citizens’ lives and that they are ready to work with whoever displays an active, loyal commitment to embrace change for an improved political and social climate around the country.
“BiH needs politicians up to the tasks it is facing and we will continue to support those with the determination to face them effectively,” the statement reads.
