Foreign and European Affairs Minister Gordan Grlić Radman spoke at the 2022 Munich Security Conference on Sunday, while participating in the panel discussion entitled "Back to Elysium: Fostering European Cohesion". 

The minister said it was the first time that Bosnia and Herzegovina was so often the topic of discussion at the global security conference.

Croatia strongly supports EU expansion into the Western Balkans and the importance of maintaining the constitutional rights of Croats in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

"I repeated that the functionality of Bosnia and Herzegovina depends on changes to the election law and the guaranteed equality of the three constituent peoples. Croatia does not support the position that elections must be held this fall no matter what. We feel that elections should be postponed if political leaders do not reach an agreement on changes to the election law. I will also make this position clear tomorrow in front of the Foreign Affairs Council.

Prime Minister Andrej Plenković had been scheduled to attend the ongoing international security conference but cancelled his travel plans to Munich after the death of his father late on Saturday evening following a serious illness.

Professor Mario Plenković was a professor of information sciences at the University of Zagreb, and had been a member of the European Academy of Sciences and Arts since 2014.
