“I would be delighted if B&H gets the candidate status for the EU membership by the beginning of 2017. Although, by itself, it does not mean anything spectacular after the B&H authorities send the application for the membership,” said political analyst Almir Terzic.
He recalls that it must be kept in mind that Albania has waited for its candidate status for 5 years and 2 months, Serbia waited for 2 years and 2 months, Montenegro for 2 years, Macedonia a year and 9 months.
“Who can expect that B&H, in record time, in less than a year, receives the same, when B&H authorities are unable to fulfill the three conditions which would make the application credible? And thousands of other questions should be answered as well,” says Terzic.
