Twenty years ago, the peace agreements initialed in Dayton were signed at the Elysée Palace.
They brought an end to one of the most tragic periods in the history of the Balkans and the European Continent.
France will not forget the victims of those years of fighting and violence.
We have come a long way since 1995. Little by little, Bosnia-Herzegovina is moving closer to the European Union, particularly as a result of the encouraging measures adopted this year as part of the reform agenda.
We urge everyone to contribute to the continuation of this process.
