European Union to withdraw troops from Bosnia

At an informal EU Council meeting between the ministers of defense, all but two or three countries have agreed to start a gradual withdrawl of European Union military forces from Bosnia. According to the International Harald Tribune, these countries are Slovakia, Italy, and Greece.

Supposedly by chance, also yesterday, Bosnian President Haris Silajdžić, in a speech in front of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE), has called for a reformed constitution in the Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina in order to take full account of the Dayton agreement that ended the war in Bosnia in 1995.
