Slovak Foreign Affairs Minister Miroslav Lajčák, who also holds the position of EU Special Representative for Bosnia and Herzegovina, will include a stop over in the symbolic city of Mostar, where he hopes to impart some of the experiences Slovakia had throughout its EU accession process during a speech. He was invited to talk at the opening of a political academy along with the Croatian Prime Minister Jadranka Kosor.
Today Lajčák has a meeting with Bosnian Foreign Minister Sven Alkalaj in Sarajevo, which will also be attended by President of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Haris Silajdzic.
Lajčák, who is fluent in nine languages, including Bosnian, Serbian, and Croatian, became the High Representative for Bosnia and Herzegovina in 2007. He is married to TV news presenter Jarmila Lajčáková-Hargašová.
The meeting comes two days after a bombing outside a police station north-west of Sarajevo killed one officer and injured at least five more.
