Three former high representatives to Bosnia and Herzegovina have sent a letter to Brussels in which they claim that Croatia is continuously meddling in that country's internal affairs.
Croatia's Foreign and European Affairs Ministry has responded to the letter from Christian Schwarz-Schilling, Paddy Ashdown and Carl Bildt, noting that as opposed to the three former high representatives, Croatia was not meddling in Bosnia and Herzegovina's internal affairs, but rather meeting its international obligations, and respecting in full its independence, territorial integrity and legal and constitutional framework.
Prime Minister Andrej Plenković also commented on the issue, slamming all three former high representatives for directly contributing to reducing the rights of Croats in Bosnia and Herzegovina and eroding the content of the Dayton Agreement.
"The mere fact that these three retirees have raised their voices means that our engagement and our activities were so strong that they felt the need to say something. But they, through their own actions and decisions, contributed to the gradual reduction of the rights of the Croat people in Bosnia and Herzegovina, and to change what was agreed on in Dayton and Paris," the prime minister said.
