Upon arrival on a one-day visit to BiH, Serbian Prime Minister Ana Brnabić reiterated that there is no cooling of relations between the two countries but remarked that building a highway to Sarajevo was more important for relations between both countries than her and Serbian President Aleksandar Vučić’s visit to Sarajevo.

“By symbolically connecting the highway between Belgrade and Sarajevo, we are building a highway from two directions to Sarajevo, and I think that we have no future without reconciliation and better communication and cooperation. I also know what the policy of President Aleksandar Vucic is, and that is, above all, regional cooperation and better connections and relations,” Brnabić said in the southern town of Nevesinje in Republika Srpska, N1 reported.

“I have no problem with coming to Sarajevo, and I always like to go there, and I hope to do so soon. It is important to leave the past behind; we cannot forget it, but to forgive and go boldly further into the future – that we can,” she said.
