The international community must act together to overcome the crisis in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Tuesday.
Erdogan spoke during a joint news conference alongside his Serbian counterpart Aleksandar Vucic ALEXANDER VOO CHICH, referring to recent moves toward separatism in Bosnia.
Erdogan said all parties must refrain from taking steps that “harm the territorial integrity of Bosnia and Herzegovina and act responsibly.”
He said this is key for peace and stability.
Vucic stressed that Belgrade respects the territorial integrity of neighboring Bosnia and Herzegovina.
He added that it is also important to remember the region’s history and to learn from it.
Bosnian genocide between 1992 and 1995 killed about 100,000 people and displaced over two million.
Now Serbs in Bosnia are trying to carve out a separate country for themselves.
