Leaders of Serbia, Croatia and Bosnia-Herzegovina (BiH) agreed on Friday after the trilateral meeting on Jahorina that they will focus on resolving open issues and realisation of joint initiatives together with their governments.

Leaders of Serbia, Croatia and Bosnia-Herzegovina (BiH) agreed on Friday after the trilateral meeting on Jahorina that they will focus on resolving open issues and realisation of joint initiatives together with their governments.

During a joint news conference following the meeting which lasted over four hours, Serbian President Boris Tadic, his Croatian counterpart Ivo Josipovic and members of the BiH Presidency Zeljko Komsic, Nebojsa Radmanovic and Bakir Izetbegovic released that they reached an agreement according to which fight against organised crime should be in the focus of attention and that they would apply for EU funds in resolving economic problems.

Chairman of the BiH Presidency Zeljko Komsic specified that it is important for all three countries to participate together in the organisation of winter sports competitions and constitution of the regional handball league.

Komsic underscored that it is important to invest efforts with a view to exploiting EU funds for the macro-region. As regards joint presentation in consular offices, he said that it would be a good idea but that it is up to the three countries' governments to examine the possibilities for its realisation.

The talks also covered the changes in the regime of administrative crossing categorisation which should be made when Croatia becomes a member of the EU, Komsic said.

We will call on the governments to become more actively involved in resolving property and border issues, Komsic noted.

Participants in the meeting welcomed the constitution of the BiH Council of Ministers, the results of the referendum in Croatia and the announced EU candidate status for Serbia.

Bosniak member of the BiH Presidency Bakir Izetbegovic said that the meeting was marked by a positive atmosphere.

Together with our governments, we aim to start resolving open issues such as borders and property in 2012 which have been burdening the three countries' relations for years now, Izetbegovic stated.

He said that there is room for good cooperation in the region.

According to Serb member of the BiH Presidency Nebojsa Radmanovic, participants in the trilateral meeting are entering a new stage of operation after the Brijuni meeting.

We expect Croatia to serve as our ambassador once it accesses the EU, but this will not be an easy task, Radmanovic stated.

He noted that the EU does not attach too much thought to enlargement in terms of the Western Balkans.

The initiative put forth by the Croatian president as regards facilitating the prosecution of war crimes suspects by signing an inter-state agreement was discussed in the informal part of the meeting.

The Serbian president backed the initiative, but the chairman of the BiH Presidency did not approve of it because BiH has not reached a unified stand on the matter.

Leaders of the three countries held the second informal trilateral meeting in Jahorina on Friday.
