MEPs to debate the increasingly tense situation in Bosnia and Herzegovina 

On Tuesday, MEPs will assess the situation in Bosnia and Herzegovina, where growing secessionist rhetoric and action is threatening the stability of the country.

The political situation in Bosnia and Herzegovina is increasingly tense, with a surge of nationalism and separatism continuing to threaten peace, stability and the integrity of the country, including the functioning of state institutions.

In early January, the U.S. imposed sanctions on Bosnian Serb leader Milorad Dodik, accusing him of corruption and of threatening the stability of the Balkan country.

In a report on the implementation of Common Foreign and Security Policy, adopted on 17 February 2022, MEPs called on the EU to also impose targeted sanctions on Mr Dodik and his allies for his corrupt activities, continued destabilisation of the country, and for undermining Bosnia and Herzegovina’s sovereignty and territorial integrity. No EU sanctions are currently in place.
