“The Bosniak member of the country’s tripartite Presidency on Tuesday asked the EU Special Representative in Bosnia for an official statement from the European Commission over their financing of a bridge neighbouring Croatia is building across Bosnian waters, even though Bosnia objects to it.

The meeting between Presidency member Bakir Izetbegovic and the EU’s Lars-Gunnar Wigemark was unannounced.

The issue at the centre of the meeting was the construction of the Peljesac Bridge, which is intended to link the Croatian mainland and the Peljesac Peninsula, bypassing a 15 kilometre-long strip around the city of Neum that represents Bosnia and Herzegovina’s only coast on the Adriatic Sea.” (N1)
