The office of the president released the following statement earlier today:

It is the joint position of President Milanović and Prime Minister Plenković that it is necessary to take into account the fact that Croats are one of the three constituent peoples in Bosnia and Herzegovina and that it is Croatia’s obligation to insist on the protection of the status and rights of Croats in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

President Milanović and Prime Minister Plenković agreed that the positions of the Republic of Croatia will be presented by Prime Minister Plenković at an international conference on Tuesday, which is being organized by the Croatian Academy of Sciences and Arts and the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs on the 25th anniversary of the Dayton Agreement.
