Bosnian minister says relation with Croatia very good

Relations between Bosnia and Herzegovina and Croatia are very good and entirely unburdened by any serious challenges and it is tile for those relations to be put in the function of the economy, Bosnia and Herzegovina Foreign Minister Igor Crndak said in Zagreb on Wednesday, adding that his country enjoyed Zagreb's overall support.

Crndak told the press that together with Serbia, Croatia was Bosnia's most important foreign trade partner in the region, right after Italy and Germany, adding that trade amounted to approximately five billion convertible marks.

He expressed hope the two countries' trade would further advance.

Crndak told the press the two countries had bilateral issues that were being discussed, such as a possible nuclear waste deposit site in Trgovinska Gora, air pollution in Bosandski Brod and some border crossings, adding however that Croatia and Bosnia have reached a constructive agreement on those issues.

He also announced the signing of an agreement on European Partnership between Croatia and Bosnia, should the current political situation in Croatia allow it.

Crndak said he and Croatian Foreign and European Affairs Minister Miro Kovac could sign the said agreement in late July, during his official visit to Zagreb
