Bosnia and Herzegovina has been an aberration and deviation for 25 years because of “European commissars”, Croatian President Zoran Milanović said while speaking to reporters during a visit to the Zemunik airbase, inland from the coastal city of Zadar, on Tuesday.

The president said he would not care for the country if 500,000 ethnic Croats were not living there. “Yes, the situation in Bosnia and Herzegovina concerns us, at least me,” he said in response to questions from the press.

In BiH, agreements cannot be reached without Serbs and their representatives, Milanović went on to say, adding that it is “certain Bosniak elites” and not the Serbs that are currently creating problems for the Croats there.

“I guess the Serbs have realised what nonsense they got themselves into and that they are nothing but a footnote to Russians. They don’t mean anything to Russia,” the Croatian president said.
