Montenegro Press Review – February 2, 2015
Sutorina can not be part of Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Bosnian official claims. Montenegrin opposition urges ruling party to join the “technical government.” The government has to pay 154 million for Eurobonds.
Minister of Foreign Affairs of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Zlatko Lagumdzija, said that from the geographical, historical and political point of view Bosnia has the right to Sutorinu, but that the disputed area can not be part of Bosnia because of the decision of the Badinter Peace Commission for Former Yugoslavia, which defined the boundaries of the former Yugoslav republics.
After the initial nervousness, the ruling Democratic Party of Socialists should seriously and formally respond to the offer of a united opposition to form a transitional government, the leader of the opposition Democratic Front, Miodrag Lekic, said.
The deadline for payment of approximately 154 million euros worth Eurobonds, issued in 2010, is September this year. The Ministry of Finance has said that there is a risk that they will not be able to provide the money.
