Izetbegovic in Brussels: We will resolve Croatian Question in the First Half of 2016

(ANADOLU AJANSI-SAMIR YORDAMOVIC) (20120531)Speaking at the conference in Brussels, which is devoted to the 20th anniversary of the Dayton Agreement, Bakir Izetbegovic, member of the Presidency of B&H, said that the Croatian issue should be resolved in the first half of 2016.

“The European future of Bosnia and Herzegovina – 20 years after the Dayton-Paris Peace Agreement” is the title of the conference which was held today in Brussels, in the organization of members of the European Parliament from Croatia.

Member of the Presidency of B&H Bakir Izetbegovic and the Chairman of the Presidency of B&H Dragan Covic are attending the conference, as well as the High Representative of B&H Valentin Inzko, EU Commissioner Johannes Hahn, Federica Mogherini and other high officials.

One of the issues that should be solved as soon as possible is the protection of the Croats, since there is three times less Croats than Bosniaks in FB&H, said Izetbegovic.

“Croats should be equally represented, to have parities, not only in the Armed Forces of B&H and the Council of Ministers of B&H, but also within the structure of the 73 agencies. At the moment, the Chairman of the Presidency of B&H is a Croat and he was also the Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces of B&H, the Minister of Defense is Croat and the Commander of the Joint Staff of Armed Forces of B&H is also Croat. Situation is similar when it comes to banking. I want to say that there are things that need to be resolved, but there are also things that we have already solved and where Croats are in even better position, in relation to their number,” said Izetbegovic.

Izetbegovic stated that it is also very important to recognize the real interests and to separate them from the national delusions.
