“I’m working so that each of the partners in the region moves forward on the reform path towards the EU. Regional cooperation and good neighborly relations are essential,” said Mogherini.

She is planning meetings with political leaders, including representatives of government, political parties and members of parliaments.

She will inform EU foreign ministers about the results of the visit on the 6th of March, after returning to Brussels.

She said that the coming period should be dedicated to the realization of goals of the Reform Agenda and finalizing the response from the Questionnaire of European Commission, which is a precondition for the further development and prosperity of BiH.

Then was announced that the High Representative of the European Union will visit BiH in early March and that it will be an opportunity to be introduced with the progress achieved so far and planned activities on the path of European integration.
