WASHINGTON, USA (November 11,2007) - During the lecture at the Georgetown University in Washington,D.C.,USA,on the topic “Bosnia: the way ahead”, a member of the Bosnian Presidency Dr Haris Silajdžić clarified the current situation in the region and pointed out that democratic and functional structure of Bosnia was the best guarantee for the country’s progress towards the EU and NATO membership and the long-term stability in the region. Dr Silajdžić noticed that certain circles in the democratic countries must be persuaded in that fact, emphasizing that we are forced to smuggle in the democracy and the pluralism in Bosnia, just as Bosnia was forced to smuggle in the weapons for defending itself against the 1992-1995 Serbian,Montenegrin and Croatian aggressions.

In a full university classroom where the lecture took place, Dr Silajdžić was especially greeted by a great number of students from Bosnia studying at this prestigious university and invited them to continue to represent Bosnia in the best light.

During the interview for Al-Jazeera, asked what he would do about the Kosovo status, Dr Silajdžić said that in any case, he would not give the green light to signing the Stabilization and Association Agreement to Serbia until Serbia has fulfilled its international commitments.
