Oreskovic held an informal meeting with the Chairman of Bosnia's collective Presidency, Dragan Covic, and the Speaker of the Lower House of the Bosnian Parliament, Borjana Kristo.

The talks also focused on the position of the Croat people in Bosnia and the ways how to improve their status, the statement said.
