Croatian Foreign Minister Miro Kovac and his Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov on Monday underlined the importance of strengthening Croatian-Russian economic relations and, concerning the situation in Bosnia and Herzegovina, the imperative of its survival, the Foreign Ministry said in a press release.
The two ministers spoke on the phone and agreed to meet soon, the holding of bilateral consultations, and a session of the inter-governmental commission for economic and trade relations.
Kovac and Lavrov also discussed the situation in Bosnia, whose Serb entity yesterday held a successful referendum on the entity's day, although the Constitutional Court had banned it, amid fears that it could lead to a referendum on the entity's separation from Bosnia.
"They underlined as imperatives the survival and stability of Bosnia and Herzegovina based on the implementation of the Dayton peace agreement and the full respect of the constitutionality and equality of all three constituent peoples, Croats, Bosniaks and Serbs," the press release said.
