Meeting with Štefan Füle, the European Commissioner for Enlargement

Štefan Füle, the European Commissioner for Enlargement, received on 10 September 2010 in Brussels the Igman Initiative delegation, consisting of  Živorad Kovačević, President of the Igman Initiative Council, Aleksandar Popov, Co-President of the Igman Initiative for Serbia and Vehid Šehić, Co-President of the Igman Initiative for Bosnia and Herzegovina. Having been informed on the past and future activities of this network of NGOs from the countries signatories to the Dayton Agreement by the delegation members, Commissioner Füle stated that the Igman Initiative was unique by the method of conducting its activities and reputation it gained in the course of 10 years of its activities. Due to that, it made a great impact and achieved excellent results in its efforts aimed at improvement of regional cooperation. As the regional cooperation is one of absolute priorities of the EU, the Igman Initiative might count on its full support in the forthcoming period, he added. Commissioner Füle said it would be given his support in contacts with governments and in the public of the countries of the Dayton Agreement.

As far as specific support is concerned, it is possible through realisation of joint projects as well as through a direct support to projects of Igman Initiative and its members. With regard to that, following the talks with Commissioner Füle, the Igman Initiative delegation also had talks with Mr. Yngve Engström, Head of Unit DG Enlargement.
