Council conclusions on enlargement and stabilisation and association process, 18 June 2019 (excerpt on BiH)

The Council today adopted conclusions on the EU’s enlargement policy and the EU-Western Balkans stabilisation and association process.


  1. The Council takes note of the Commission’s opinion on Bosnia and Herzegovina’s application for membership of the EU. The Council will continue to examine this document thoroughly and revert to the matter later this year. The Council encourages Bosnia and Herzegovina to proceed with government formation without any further delay, in order to pursue necessary reforms. Party politics and a lack of willingness to compromise should not block the legitimate aspirations of the citizens of Bosnia and Herzegovina to advance towards the European Union.
