Xinhua: Austria stresses backing BiH's efforts for EU accession21 March 2017 | 00:11 | FOCUS News Agency
The words came when BiH's Chairman of Council of Ministers Denis Zvizdic paid a visit here.
Kern said the presentation of a European Commission questionnaire to BiH represented a first step in the process.
He further stressed that without EU involvement, there would be a "vacuum" in the Western Balkans region, and as such Austria firmly supports future EU perspectives for those in the region.
Zvizdic also noted the importance of an EU accession for his country, saying it is currently its highest foreign policy objective.
He added that Austria is the "greatest advocate" of this process for his country.
