Russia views Bosnia as `important strategic partner in Balkans` – Lavrov

Opening talks with Bosnia’s Zlatko Lagumdzija, Mr. Lavrov said Moscow was open to cooperation with both entities: the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina and Republika Srpska. "The agenda of our partnership is getting more and more diverse,” the minister stressed, citing major breakthroughs in economic and social spheres.

"We highly appreciate the commitment of BiH’s leadership to deepen its cooperation with Russia… It is in our best interest,” Mr. Lavrov added.

The ministers are expected to discuss the situation around the Balkans, the Bosnia settlement, as well as Bosnian-Russian cooperation in the framework of international and European organizations.

Mr. Lagumdzija responded by saying that Russia was "a country of importance for BiH” and lauded it as "the key warrant of the Dayton Accords,” that put an end to 3.5-year Bosnia War.
