    (ANSAmed) - BRUSSELS, JANUARY 15 - European Commission foreign policy spokesperson Peter Stano said Friday if Bosnia-Herzegovina is unable to meet the EU's requests as well as international obligations to solve the humanitarian crisis at the Lipa migrant camp, "there will be consequences", including regarding the country's "aspiration" to become a part of the EU.

    Stano said migrants are "trapped in this situation that is in large part caused by national authorities' inability to enact the necessary decisions and to respect its own commitments". He said the "entire situation is negatively influencing Bosnia-Herzegovina's image" and there may be political "reactions and steps" against Sarajevo by the EU, if the situation isn't urgently resolved. The issue is "the subject of a very intense discussion in Brussels, in EU capitals and in the field", Stano said.(ANSAmed). (ANSA).
