KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (July 1,2008) - Bosnia and Malaysia's experiences with multi-cultural and multi-ethnic societies can contribute to easing some of the problems and ills besetting the world today.

He said that the two countries had shown to the world that after all, peaceful interaction and tolerance was still possible in this world.

"Although not big countries...the two countries have experiences which can contribute to (solving or easing) outstanding problems of today...(the experience) can help understand...maybe, cure or ease some problems (of the world today)," he said in his public lecture on "Multicultural Society and Globalisation" at the Institute of Diplomacy and Foreign Relation (IDFR) in in the Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur yesterday.
