The head of the Delegation of the EU and EU Special Representative in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Lars Gunnar Wigemark, has said in a comment on the 60th anniversary of the Treaty of Rome that Bosnia and Herzegovina's future lies in the EU.
Recalling that the signing of the treaty was the first step towards a united Europe, the Swedish diplomat said that the last six decades in the EU were marked by peace, prosperity and security that had not been recorded until then.
Bosnia and Herzegovina's future is definitely in the EU, and we will continue to cooperate with the authorities, civil society, media and citizens of this country to help you accomplish your aspiration to join the EU, said Wigemark.
He recalled that Bosnia and Herzegovina was the last European country to submit an application for EU membership, showing that the need for a united European continent remained strong.
Wigemark said that the world was going through a period of great uncertainty, that the global balance of power was shifting and that the rules-based international order was being questioned too often, as well as that the EU would increasingly be a vital force in preserving and strengthening the global order.
