The presidents of Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia, and Serbia have met in the Bosnian ski resort of Jahorina to discuss ways of fighting the organized crime that plagues their region.

Zeljko Komsic, the current chairman of Bosnia's tripartite presidency, said cooperation in the fight against organized crime is of "particular interest to three countries."

The three leaders were also expected to discuss their nations gaining access to European Union funds for use in buidling regional cooperation and a change of border procedures after Croatia joins the European Union in 2013.

Serbia and Bosnia also have EU membership aspirations but they have yet to obtain membership-candidate status.
