The European Union's 28 member states formally accept Bosnia and Herzegovina's membership application. The European Commission (EC) will now determine whether Bosnia meets the criteria to join the union, a process that is expected to take a year. A senior Slovak foreign ministry official, Ivan Korcok, whose country holds the rotating EU presidency, said "this is a good day for Bosnia, but for us as well. We are showing that the enlargement strategy and approach to the aspiring countries works." Over the last 14 months, Bosnia has been working to pass reforms to improve the country's economic prospects. The EU member states said Bosnia should maintain its reform agenda, including "socio-economic reforms, reforms in the area of rule of law and public administration." (http://www.dw.com...).

Will this affect stability in Yugo-I mean the Balkans? Will other Balkan states join? Will Bosnia be accepted? Is this a good idea? Discuss.

The Yugo has problems with tourque steer and getting pushed around by crosswinds. The parts of that country have hated each other for hundreds of years and Marshall Tito was the only man who could keep them in line.

So no one cares about Bosnia? That makes sense, I guess.

I wonder how Republika Srpska will respond to this.
