Central Europeans call for EU candidate status for Bosnia-Herzegovina
Five central European EU member states have called on the European Union to grant candidate status to the Western Balkan country of Bosnia-Herzegovina. "It is about a signal from our governments that the Western Balkans is important for the EU," Austrian Foreign Minister Alexander Schallenberg said on Wednesday in Budapest. Meeting in the Hungarian capital, the foreign ministers of the so-called C5 (Austria, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Slovenia) demanded that the next EU summit in October put the issue on the agenda.
