BRUSSELS – Federica Mogherini, High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy/Vice-President of the European Commission, met with the Chairman of the Presidency of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Dragan Čović, to exchange views on the political situation in the country and its European Union integration path.

The High Representative and Chairman Čović discussed the immediate priorities ahead of the BiH authorities, in particular swift adoption of the excise duty law, completing the answers to the questionnaire by the end of the year, as well as ensuring the continued and effective implementation of the Reform Agenda. All these steps are essential for Bosnia and Herzegovina’s progress on the EU integration path; it is also something that the people of the country demand and expect.

Federica Mogherini underlined her determination to support all Western Balkans partners, including BiH, in taking concrete and irreversible steps forward on their European Union integration path. She was clear in her expectation that Bosnia and Herzegovina would deliver swiftly and convincingly on its EU commitments.
