The Bosnian government said in a statement Rehn will meet Bosnian Prime Minister Adnan Terzic at the start of the talks, which could lead to Bosnia's eventual membership of the EU.

Fabrizio Barbaso, the European Commission's director general for enlargement, has said the talks -- which were approved by EU foreign ministers on 21 November -- may take one year.
