Presidency's Bosniak member delays first visit to Belgrade.

By bne IntelliNews May 26, 2010
The Bosniak member of the state tripartite presidency, Haris Silajdzic, postponed his official visit to Belgrade due to some flight cancellations, a statement from his office reads. Silajdzic, who was in New York attending the United Nations Security Council debate on Bosnia, was not able to board for Munich because of a cancelled flight due to plane engine trouble. Last week Silajdzic's office arranged an official meeting with Serbian president Boris Tadic, which should have taken place in Belgrade on Tuesday (May 25). This would have been the first official visit of a Bosniak member of the state tripartite presidency to neighbouring Serbia since the 1992-1995 war. Silajdzic has previously refused to visit the neighbouring country unless the Serbian politicians change their stance on the war crimes committed in Bosnia. The change in his stance became possible after the Serbian parliament adopted some 2 months ago the so-called Srebrenica Declaration, condemning the 1995 massacre in the Bosnian city.
