Within the celebration of the Victory Day and the Homeland Thanksgiving, the Croatian Veterans Day, and the 20th anniversary of the Military-police operation Oluja, the Chairman of the Presidency of B&H Dragan Covic met with the President of the Republic of Croatia Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic.
The topics at the meeting were regional circumstances and cooperation, bilateral relations of the two countries, as well as the current political situation in B&H.
On that occasion, the significance of the urgent improvement of the good-neighborly and friendly relations is emphasized, with the aim of strengthening the mutual cooperation in all fields.
The collocutors agreed that, for achieving that goal, the key is the process of reconciliation based on truth, historical facts and verdicts of the international judicial instances, as well as on sincere compassion for all the victims of the past war.
In this regard, the regional leaders have a great responsibility of promoting the truth in order to successfully terminate the reconciliation process and create preconditions for uninterrupted development of cooperation in all fields relevant also for the process of integration of the countries from the region in the European Union.
The Chairman of the Presidency of B&H informed the Croatian President on the current political relations, activities related to the implementation of economic and social reforms in B&H within the European path, and about the accompanying challenges and difficulties.
In this part, the socially-political implications related to the recently adopted Labor Law, which represents one of the most demanding reform laws, were considered with special attention, as well as the urgency of the soonest possible amendments to the Electoral Law which is especially significant from the viewpoint of improving the rule of law.
