MUNICH – EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell said that the situation in Bosnia and Herzegovina is more worrying than ever and the European Union will not accept a dissolution of the country, N1 reported.

“The situation in Bosnia is certainly worrying, more worrying than ever. It’s never been easy but now there are really centrifugal forces to be found”, Borell said at the Munich Security Conference.

He assessed that Bosnia’s political leaders must reach an agreement to implement constitutional and other reforms in order to avoid discriminationa in the country and continue its EU integration process.

“We issued a serious warning, we well not accept the dissolution of this republic”, Borrell told.
