Bosnia: Politics and Government

Volume 487: debated on Thursday 29 January 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what assessment he has made of the terms of the Odzak agreement signed on 8 November 2008 in Bosnia-Herzegovina. (240836)

The Odzak agreement sends a positive signal and demonstrates that common ground can be found between the political parties. The agreement covers important issues, including constitutional reform and some of the requirements for closure of the Office of the High Representative.

We urge all political leaders in Bosnia and Herzegovina to build a wider consensus which will lead to concrete follow up to the agreement.
