The United States will continue to support Bosnia and Herzegovina in its efforts to join the European Union and NATO, McCain said on Wednesday following his visit to the country.

“The United States will continue to support Bosnia and Herzegovina, its aspirations to join the European Union and NATO, and the reforms necessary to realize its European future,” McCain stated.

The senator from the US state of Arizona noted that during his trip through southeastern Europe, his message has been that the United States is committed to a free, whole and peaceful Europe.

Contributions to the fight against Daesh terror group as well as the ongoing operations in Afghanistan were discussed during a meeting with the leadership of Bosnia and Herzegovina, McCain added.
