Ambassadors of the Peace Implementation Council member countries will meet in Sarajevo on Tuesday and Wednesday to discuss the current situation in Bosnia. Members of the PIC steering board will discuss the political situation in the country and the state of media freedoms.
On Wednesday, the political directors will meet with members of both Houses of the Bosnian Parliament. The Office of the High Representative said the ambassadors will discuss Bosnia’s priorities with the lawmakers.
The PIC comprises 55 countries and agencies that support the peace process. Following the successful negotiation of the Dayton Peace Agreement in 1995, a Peace Implementation Conference was held in London in December that year to mobilize international support for the Agreement. The meeting resulted in the establishment of the PIC. The steering board members are Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Russia, United Kingdom, United States, the Presidency of the European Union, the European Commission, and the Organisation of the Islamic Conference, represented by Turkey. The Steering Board provides the High Representative with political guidance.
