BELGRADE – Chairman and members of the Presidency of Bosnia-Herzegovina (BiH) Dragan Covic, Mladen Ivanic and Bakir Izetbegovic arrived in Belgrade at noon on Wednesday on an official visit to Serbia at the invitation of Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic.
The presidency members were given a ceremonial welcome outside the Palace of Serbia, with top state and military honors, honor guard and the playing of the anthems of the two countries.
Straight after that, the talks started between the Croat, Bosniak and Serb member of the collective Presidency of BiH and the Serbian prime minister and government officials.
The meeting was initiated by the Serbian prime minister with an eye to easing tensions in the region after the brutal attack on him at the commemoration in Srebrenica on July 11.
Vucic said that he and members of the BiH Presidency will discuss ways to reduce nationalist tensions, economic cooperation, primarily in the defense industry, and joint entry to third markets.
