The unsteadiness in Bosnia and Herzegovina could lead to ethnic clashes, said the Bulgarian EUFOR commander Colonel Ivan Otomarov.

In his report he said the forthcoming parliamentary elections as well as the social and economic problems the country faces could lead to clashes between people from different ethnicities.

Otomarov expressed his concerns during conference calls between the Defence Ministry officials and the national commanders of Bulgarian contingents abroad, on the eve of celebrations dedicated to the 10th anniversary of Bulgaria joining NATO.
