The Archbishop of Sarajevo, Cardinal Vinko Puljic, and the international community’s High Representative in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Valentin Inzko, have condemned violence at anti-government protests in the country and said that the present authorities ignore the need for dialogue with citizens, the Catholic news agency KTA said on Tuesday.
The archbishop received the Austrian diplomat who run the international administration in Bosnia and Herzegovina at his own request.
Puljic expressed hope that the international community would take a more serious approach in addressing problems in the country, while Inzko thanked Puljic and the head of the Islamic community, Husein Kavazovic, for their statement in efforts to defuse the escalation of public discontent in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
