Sarajevo Arhbishop says Croatia's support to Bosnia's EU path exceptionally important

The Sarajevo Archbishop, Cardinal Vinko Puljic, said in Sarajevo on Monday that Croatia's support for Bosnia and Herzegovina's EU path was exceptionally important, adding that Bosnia's alignment to EU standards would help stabilise it and improve living conditions which, according to him, were now poor, causing large-scale immigration.

This is what Puljic told Croatian Parliament Speaker Zeljko Reiner, with whom he met during the first day of Reiner's working visit to Bosnia.

Puljic told the press after the talks with Reiner that he had informed the Croatian officials of the difficulties that Croats in Bosnia were faced with.

Puljic underscored the importance of European integration processes and reform implementation, saying that Croatia could help Bosnia with its experience and knowledge.
