Commissioner Várhelyi on official visit to Bosnia and Herzegovina


Commissioner for Neighbourhood and Enlargement, Olivér Várhelyi, will be travelling to Bosnia and Herzegovina on 24 and 25 November to pursue political dialogue with the country's leaders as part of the EU's efforts to de-escalate the situation and help relaunch the European agenda, so that Bosnia and Herzegovina moves forward on its EU path. Commissioner Várhelyi will meet representatives of State and entity institutions, including the Trio Presidency and political leaders in Sarajevo, Banja Luka and Mostar. The EU has been consistently calling on political leaders to refrain from destabilising unilateral actions and divisive rhetoric and to refocus on the implementations of 14 key priorities required for Bosnia and Herzegovina to progress on its European path, including full functioning of State institutions and advancing with constitutional and electoral reforms. EbS will provide audiovisual coverage. (For more information: Ana Pisonero – Tel.: +32 229 54320; Elisa Castillo Nieto – Tel.: +32 229 63803)
