Western Balkans: Insult after injury: Barroso Commission excludes Bosnia-Herzegovina from visa liberalisation.

The European Commission is tomorrow [15.07.2009] expected to announce plans for a new Western Balkans visa regime that will include Serbia, Montenegro and Macedonia, but exclude Bosnia-Herzegovina.

Daniel Cohn-Bendit, Co-President of the Greens/EFA group in the European Parliament, commented:

“The Commission’s plan to exclude Bosnia-Herzegovina from visa liberalisation in the Western Balkans adds insult to injury to the people who suffered most during the war that raged less than two decades ago.
