He confirmed that he emphasized the need for urgent steps towards de-escalation of tensions, avoiding further rhetoric and actions that undermine trust and state institutions, as well as for an urgent return to fully functioning state institutions.

Further, he noted that this is crucial for the EU perspective of BiH, and that without it there is a risk of losing significant financial assistance.
