Ban Ki-Moon pointed out the significance of the unity of the Bosnian state institutions and necessity of focus on Bosnia's stability as one of the important factors in the region.
It is, due to this, necessary to ensure that all Bosnian citizens feel safe and comfortable in Bosnia.At the end he expressed his wishes and hopes that Bosnia will become temporary member of the UN Council of Security.
