The European Union has recognised Bosnia and Herzegovina's constitutional architecture, and the conclusions adopted by the European Council at Croatia's initiative should be an impetus to Croat and Bosniak leaders to reach a deal on electoral reform, Prime Minister Andrej Plenković from Brussels.

On Friday, the European Council endorsed the Strategic Compass, a document on the European Union's defence vision in the coming years.

"I must say that EU's Strategic Compass is a document provides the policy framework for the EU's defence and security in the context of the global challenges we will be facing over the next seven to eight years. It is especially important that, on the proposal of Croatia, in the part that refers to Bosnia and Herzegovina, the equality of the constituent peoples in Bosnia along with, of course all citizens, is emphasized," said Plenković.

The Strategic Compass, which was accepted by Foreing and European Ministers earlier this week, reads that it is "of particular interest to support the sovereignty, unity and territorial integrity of Bosnia and Herzegovina, based on the principles of equality and non-discrimination of all citizens and constituent peoples as enshrined in the constitution."

The European Union reaffirmed its commitment to the European perspective of Bosnia and Herzegovina and the Western Balkans, and urged the country's leaders to complete necessary electoral and constitutional reforms.
