SARAJEVO, Bosnia (December 8,2007) - A member of the Bosnian Presidency Dr Haris Silajdžić met with Struan Stevenson and Gunnar Hokmark, the members of the European Union Parliament. The topic of the conversation was the EU perspective of Bosnia, as well as the political situation in the region.

Dr Silajdžić assessed that initialing the Stabilization and Association Agreement between Bosnia and the European Union is of great significance for all Bosnian citizens.

Dr Silajdzic also added he expects the intensification of the reform path of Bosnia so that the country could achieve the candidate status as soon as possible, as well as the final and the full-fledged membership in the European Union.

The European Union Parliament Delegation’s members agreed that the integration of Bosnia in the European Union is the right way, as well as the integration of the entire Southeastern Europe. The EU Parliament's delegation also stated that the issue of solving the future status of Kosovo could not influence, in any way, Bosnia as a sovereign, united and indivisible state.

At the end, Dr Silajdžić welcomed the Greek initiative for accelerating the West Balkan’s integration process in the European Union and expressed a hope that the initiative would obtain a wider support from other members of the European Union.
