High Representative for Bosnia and Herzegovina, Valentin Inzko has submitted a report to the UN Security Council regarding situation in Bosnia and Herzegovina and explained that the situation is much more complicated now than that of the last year.
Inzko stressed out that lack of progress is a symptom of a wider political reality in which Bosnia and Herzegovina’s elected leaders are unwilling to put the needs of the country and its citizens above their own narrow interests.
He also pointed out that Bosnia is in a critical phase and that it must be expressed more clearly than ever what is expected of Bosnia and Herzegovina’s political leaders and what will not be tolerated.
He added that politicians must finally start leading the way to the country’s full reintegration in the interests of all its citizens.
So far Bosnia and Herzegovina's government has not issued any official statements regarding this report.
However, analysts say that one of the worst effects of this report will be on the economic development of Bosnia and Herzegovina. This report will have devastating impact on attracting foreign investments in the country, which have been in decline since 2008.
Finishing his report Inzko expressed hope that the country’s leaders would now get to work governing the country, refrain from statements which unnecessarily destabilize the political environment, and make progress allowing him to issue a more positive report in six months’ time.
One would expect that after yet another negative report, politicians would rush to change the course of their politics and work on reforms, but will that occur, it will be seen in next report that is to be submitted to UNSC in future.
