Croatian Prime Minister Jadranka Kosor, on an official visit to neighboring Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH), said on Saturday that the outstanding issues between the two countries would be resolved by the end of the month, reported the Croatian news agency Hina.

After meeting with two of the three members of the BiH Presidency, Haris Silajdzic and Zeljko Komsic, Kosor announced in Sarajevo that a joint session of the Croatian government and the Council of Ministers of BiH would be convened before the end of the month.

"It will certainly be a historic meeting between the two governments," Kosor said, adding its purpose would be to close " some of the outstanding issues." Although she did not elaborate, dual citizenship and border disputes have in the past been seen as outstanding problems between the neighboring states.

Meeting separately with representatives of Croat political parties in BiH, Kosor said: "We are here to suggest and to help but not to impose our views and opinions." Croats represent the smallest of the constituent nations of BiH.
