SARAJEVO, Bosnia (February 19,2008) – The International Community's High Representative and EU Special Representative in Bosnia, Miroslav Lajčák met yesterday in the Bosnian capital Sarajevo with Ranko Krivokapic, the Speaker of the Montenegrin Parliament.

Reviewing the declaration of independence by Kosovo’s Parliament the High Representative/EU Special Representative and the Speaker of the Montenegrin Parliament agreed that this event couldn’t derail the regions hopes of EU accession.

The EU agenda must remain the regions focus agreed Lajčák and Krivokapic.

The High Representative and EU Special Representative said that none of Bosnia’s problems are in any way related to Kosovo and its status.

“Any attempt to artificially link Kosovo to Bosnia or its constituent parts must be firmly rejected.Bosniais in no way a hostage to Kosovo nor is the country open to question under international law,” Lajcak stated.

Lajcak and Krivokapic agreed that there is no more important question for the country in the short term than its Stabilisation and Association Agreement with the European Union.
