Ammon News - The Ambassador of Bosnia and Herzegovina in Amman, Mato Zeco, has called for the establishment of a Jordanian embassy in Sarajevo, citing the importance of such a move in strengthening cooperation across a range of sectors and broadening Jordan's outreach to other Balkan countries where the Kingdom has no diplomatic representation.

In an interview with Jordan News Agency (Petra) on the occasion of his country's National Day, the ambassador praised the efforts of Jordanian peacekeepers during the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina in the 1990s, as well as Jordan's humanitarian role in accepting refugees.

Zeco said he is working with the government of his country to remove the requirement for Jordanians to obtain visas in order to enter Bosnia and Herzegovina. He also said he is in discussions with Jordanian authorities, including the Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities and the Jordan Tourism Board, to establish a direct flight route between the two nations.

The lack of a trade agreement between the two countries, he said, is holding back the potential for increased trade cooperation. He revealed that 30 Jordanian companies are currently investing in his country.
Zeco noted that there are over 1,200 Bosnian citizens in Jordan.
