Merkel promises help to fragile Bosnia on long path to EU


SARAJEVO (Reuters) - German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Thursday that Germany would help Bosnia, the last country in the queue of Western Balkan hopefuls to join the EU, to speed up an accession bid long delayed by internal political bickering.

"In Bosnia we see problems which have to be overcome," Merkel said in Sarajevo, her last stop on a Balkan tour during which she also visited Albania and Serbia. "The region can function if Bosnia is developing well."
