The Minister of Security of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Selmo Cikotić, met today in Sarajevo with the head of the Mission of the International Organization for Migration (IOM) in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Laura Lungarotti, with whom he discussed the implementation of defined priorities in the management of migration and increasing the security of citizens.
As the Ministry of Security of Bosnia and Herzegovina stated, it was pointed out that in the past period, numerous activities have been realized that resulted in the creation of adequate capacities for the accommodation of migrants, and in increasing the safety of migrants and the local population.
