Erdogan calls for revision of Dayton accords on Bosnia and Herzegovina peace

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has called for a revision of the General Framework Agreement for Peace in Bosnia and Herzegovina that ended the Bosnian War.

"The Dayton Agreement should be revisited, as it didn't generate a solution for Bosnia and Herzegovina's future," he said yesterday during a news conference with visiting Croatian President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic.

According to the Turkish leader, the United Nations should take "a stronger step" in a possible revision of the international Dayton Accords.

"There are serious problems for Bosnia and Herzegovina as there's an eight-month term presidency and there isn't any proper army. We hope Bosniaks, Croats, and Serbs will be live in solidarity," Anadolu Agency cited him as saying.

In November 1995, Bosniaks stopped the war and signed the Dayton Agreement, bringing peace to the country. Bosnia and Herzegovina consists of two entities - the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina and the Republika Srpska. The accord, initiated at Wright-Patterson U.S. Air Force base near Dayton, Ohio, on Nov. 21, 1995, ended a brutal civil war in Bosnia that resulted in around 100,000 deaths over three-and-a-half years.
