The European Parliament will discuss on Tuesday the situation in Bosnia and Herzegovina “where growing secessionist rhetoric and action is threatening the stability of the country.”

“The political situation in Bosnia and Herzegovina is increasingly tense, with a surge of nationalism and separatism continuing to threaten peace, stability and the integrity of the country, including the functioning of state institutions,” said an EP press release.

The EP noted that the United States imposed in January sanctions on the Serb member of Bosnia’s tripartite Presidency, Milorad Dodik, accusing him of corruption and of threatening the stability of the Balkan country.

“In a report on the implementation of Common Foreign and Security Policy, adopted on 17 February 2022, MEPs called on the EU to also impose targeted sanctions on Mr Dodik and his allies for his corrupt activities, continued destabilisation of the country, and for undermining Bosnia and Herzegovina’s sovereignty and territorial integrity. No EU sanctions are currently in place,” the press release said.
