''We know that the road towards entering the EU is still long'', said Fini, ''but it will be easier than some people may think because in politics it is much greater what unites you than what divided you''. Fini assured his colleague Zinvkovic of maximum attention and support from Italians regarding EU policies to allow Bosnia to join, as soon as the political ''hitches'' will be resolved within the country.
Fini also claimed that he will make efforts to accelerate the procedure of entry into the EU as stated by the Stabilisation and Association Process (SAP) which Bosnia signed with Brussels four years ago, but for which Sarajevo still hasn't achieved the conditions set by Brussels: first, the reform of the Constitution necessary to eliminate discrimination towards minorities.
Fini told the Bosnian Prime Minister Vjekoslav Bevanda that Italy is interested and will reinforce the economic and cultural relations, particularly aiming to create common projects in the energy sector. Sector for which the Bosnian government, Bevanda said, is about to elaborate a strategy which will act as a sort of guide for all foreign investors. (ANSAmed).
