MOSCOW, February 12. /TASS/. Bosnia and Herzegovina’s bid for European Union membership will not affect ties with Moscow, Russia’s ambassador to the country, Petr Ivantsov, said in an interview with TASS.

"Closer ties with the European Union are one of Bosnia and Herzegovina’s priorities which is being carried out with full understanding that this process can not, should not and will not mean that dialogue with the country’s other key partners, first of all, Russia, will shrink," the diplomat said. "Sarajevo’s bid for EU membership is the country’s first sovereign step in this direction and we respect it."

Bosnia and Herzegovina filed a European Union membership bid last February. It was accepted by the European Council for consideration in September.
