SARAJEVO, June 15 (FENA) - Member of the Presidency of Bosnia and Herzegovina Željko Komšić welcomed the final declaration adopted at the NATO summit in Brussels.
In a statement from his office in the Presidency of BiH in Sarajevo, he explained the basis for supporting the document.
“The declaration does not mention constituent peoples, which was strongly insisted on by Croatia. This is another delegitimization of that outdated ethnic concept on the international scene because it shows that it is contrary to NATO and EU standards. Therefore, I welcome the declaration adopted at the NATO summit, which reaffirmed BiH's sovereignty and support for Euro-Atlantic reform processes,” the statement said.
As for the inclusion of the General Framework Agreement for Peace in BiH, support for it is expected, constant and nothing new, says Komšić and adds that some expected the inclusion of the so-called legitimate representation of the constituent peoples, but that this would not have happened because it would be contrary to the fundamental values of NATO.
When it comes to electoral reform, it is clear that it must be carried out exclusively in accordance with the judgments of the European Court of Human Rights, which very explicitly order the rejection of constitutionality.
“I also consider the call for condemnation of policies that call for divisions important,” said Komšić on the occasion of the adopted declaration.
