This was confirmed to Sarovic by the Croatian Minister of Foreign Affairs Vesna Pusic, at the margins of the meeting in Vienna.

Sarovic said that Vesna Pusic did not state the concrete reason for blocking the export of BH milk to the EU, but that the BH institutions will have more information soon.

“Some time later we also have a meeting with the Commissioner Hahn, and we will request from him the dismissal of this complaint “, said Sarovic.

Sarovic stressed that B&H met all the conditions for the export of milk and it got green light from all relevant EU institutions.
