Kovac: Bosnia-Herzegovina Croats most important link to Euro-Atlantic integration

Croatian Foreign and European Affairs Minister Miro Kovac, who attended an election convention of the HDZ 1990 party in Mostar on Saturday as the Croatian Democratic Union's (HDZ) envoy, said that Croats in Bosnia and Herzegovina had rescued the country and were currently the most important link to European and Atlantic integration processes.

"Croats in Bosnia and Herzegovina have rescued the country. We should be aware of that and we convey this to our friends in the world. Without Croats there is no state of Bosnia and Herzegovina," the Croatian minister said.

In the political sense, Croats in that country "are the most European people," strongly connected with Croatia, a European Union and NATO member, according to Kovac.

He called on local parties representing Croats to join their forces and together run in local elections set for early October.
