Swedish FM worried about Bosnia reform failure
Carl Bildt, who served some 15 years ago as the first postwar administrator in Bosnia, said Wednesday in Sarajevo that he came to hear from local politicians about whether they can form a government soon and how they see Bosnia’s European future.
The country’s leaders have failed to form a government coalition since October’s elections because of different views of the country’s future, primarily split along ethnic lines.
Bosnia is ethnically divided and some want unification while others favor a weak central government. The dispute has slowed reforms required for the country to move toward EU membership.
