Zvizdić: BiH’s perspective is in EU and European BiH will certainly win

SARAJEVO – Chairman of the BiH Council of Ministers Denis Zvizdić said yesterday, after European Commission announced the 2016 Report on BiH, and after he met the Special Representative of the EU Lars-Gunnar Wigemark, that the perspective of BiH is in the EU and that European BiH will certainly win.

“I would stress what (Commissioner for European Neighbourhood Policy and Enlargement Negotiations) Johannes Hahn said today, and that is that the European Union remains open to the Western Balkans and that all these countries are on the path of European integration and strongly intensified processes. The report is much more positive compared to the last year’s report. I am particularly satisfied that the Council of Ministers of BiH and the colleagues from entities are seen as generators of European processes, all activities for the acceleration of BiH’s road to European integration. This proactive role is something we should be proud of, but also puts additional burden,” said Zvizdić to journalists after a meeting with the Head of the EU Delegation and EU Special Representative in BiH, Ambassador Lars – Gunnar Wigemark.

He added that BiH will actively continue to work on all tasks that are within the European agenda of BiH and thus be ready for December 9, when BiH will get the questionnaire.

Chairman of the Council of Ministers said he hopes that by then will be formed bodies within coordination mechanism to deal with it.

“Given the complexity of the system in BiH many things have been completed successfully, and simultaneously we worked on the set of activities. A number of strategies have been adopted, from transportation to border management. Results are encouraging. There are recommendations we have to implement in the future. We will immediately make an action plan and clear schedule to adopt as soon as possible and adequately respond to the recommendations from the report, and remove recommendations defined from the judiciary to the sphere of public administration”, said Zvizdić.
