"On November 21-22, 2005, the United States hosted a meeting with Bosnia's collective leadership to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the Dayton accords, an agreement brokered under U.S. leadership that ended the 1992-1995 conflict in Bosnia- Herzegovina. Since early 2005, the Bush Administration has given renewed emphasis to 'unfinished business' in the western Balkan region, such as the unresolved status of Kosovo, a U.N.-run province of Serbia. The United States also seeks to bolster Bosnia's further development as a unified, democratic, and stable state on the path toward Euro- Atlantic integration. In Washington, members of Bosnia's tri-presidency pledged to carry out major constitutional reforms that are intended to enable Bosnia to become a more functional and viable state. Bosnia will hold critical national elections in October 2006. This report provides an overview of prominent current issues concerning Bosnia and may be updated. For further background information, see CRS [Congressional Research Service] Report RL32392, 'Bosnia and Herzegovina: Issues for U.S. Policy', by Steven Woehrel."
