German President Visits Bosnia --> (RFE/RL) July 5, 2007 -- German President Horst Koehler said today that Bosnia-Herzegovina is part of the European family and said Germany will support its progress toward integration into the European Union.

Koehler spoke in Sarajevo after meeting with the members of Bosnia's tripartite Presidency. Koehler said Bosnia's progress in joining the EU would depend on how successful it is in implementing reforms that are a precondition for its admission.

Koehler and his wife also visited the 300 German soldiers serving as part of the EU peacekeeping force in Bosnia.
