BRUSSELS, Belgium (September 11,2007) - The European Union (EU) High Representative for the Common Foreign and Security Policy, Javier Solana, urged Bosnia yesterday to push forward police reform, which is crucial for the signing of the Stabilization and Association Agreement (SAA) between Bosnia the EU.

In a meeting with the International Community's High Representative and EU Special Representative in Bosnia, Miroslav Lajcak, Solana called on Bosnia's political leaders to engage constructively on the latest initiative presented by Lajcak so as to remove the last obstacle preventing the country from concluding the SAA with the EU.

During the meeting, Solana and Lajcak discussed the current political situation in Bosnia, mainly the police reform.

Solana expressed his full support for Lajcak's efforts to find a compromise on police reform with the country's party leaders.

Signing of the SAA is considered the first step for the Southeastern European nations to join the EU.
