Plenkovic: HDZ considers Bosnia as Croatia's foreign policy priority

Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ) leader Andrej Plenkovic on Friday received the Catholic Bishop of Banja Luka,  Franjo Komarica, and on that occasion he said that his party considered Bosnia and Herzegovina a priority in Croatia's foreign affairs.

He reassured the dignitary that the HDZ would strongly advocate that local Croats should be on an equal footing with the other two constituent peoples in that country and that Bosnia and Herzegovina should continue its journey towards the European Union as the only guarantee for the stability and territorial integrity of the country, according to a statement released on the HDZ's website.

Plenkovic thanked Komarica for his humanitarian work in protecting the rights and identity of Croats in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
