Prime Minister Andrej Plenković said at Friday's year-end European Council summit in Brussles that he had informed his fellow EU leaders about the situation in Bosnia and Herzegovina, and announced that the country would be a special topic at one of the upcoming summits, most probably in the first half of next year.

Plenković said that during discussions on foreign policy issues he had spoken of his recent visit to Bosnia and Herzegovina, his impressions of the political situation and key points concerning that country in the last three decades, including the Washington and Dayton agreements, judgments by the European Court of Human Rights and the Bosnia and Herzegovina Constitutional Court, current efforts to fulfill EU criteria, and the issue of electoral reform to ensure the equality of the Croats as a constituent people in that country.

"I think my analysis was well received. It is important at this highest level to draw attention to nuances and the very complex political situation in Bosnia and Herzegovina. We will continue along these lines next year during the French presidency of the Council of the EU," Plenković said from Brussels.

He noted that French President Emmanuel Macron had positively reacted to his speech and announced that the French presidency would also deal with the issue of Southeast Europe. He also said that he had asked European Council President Charles Michel to include Bosnia and Herzegovina as a special topic at one of the future summits.
