In an interview with Jordan News Agency, Petra, on the occasion of Bosnia and Herzegovina’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 hosting refugees.

Zeco added that 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 added that discussions are ongoing with the 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 noted that 30 Jordanian companies are currently investing in his country.

Over 1,200 Bosnian citizens are present in Jordan, the envoy added.
