“Constant training within law enforcement agencies and continuous efforts towards the creation of safe and stable environment are some of the essential elements in the reforms we are carrying out on the path to the full membership in the European Union (EU), Chairman of Bosnia’s Presidency Bakir Izetbegovic has stated on Tuesday.

Speaking at the opening of a modern police training centre in the central Bosnia’s town Zenica, Izetbegovic said the country was currently ‘in the lobby of the European Union (EU).’

‘We unblocked the processes that were in a stalemate for a long time, we started implementation of the reform agenda, we adapted the Stabilization and Association Agreement (SAA), we reached a full consensus on finalizing the EU’s Questionnaire and now we are awaiting the candidate status,’ said Izetbegovic, overviewing Bosnia’s status in the accession process.” (N1)
