UNITED NATIONS, Nov. 6 (Xinhua) -- The United Nations Security Council said on Tuesday that the situation in the region of Bosnia and Herzegovina continues to constitute a threat to international peace and security.

In a resolution unanimously adopted, UNSC noted those polarizing unconstructive policies, actions and rhetoric in Bosnia and Herzegovina, and urged political leaders to advance reconciliation and mutual understanding.

The initial implementation of the Reform Agenda has provided the first steps of structural adjustment to the economy of the country, while however, the pace of implementation of Reform Agenda has slowed, said UN Security Council.

"Economic development needs be kick-started," said Valentin Inzko, high representative to the UNSC, adding that measures need to be undertaken to strengthen the rule of law, state institutions need to be supported in their functionality and independence, and these forms need to be addressed with a sense of urgency.

The Security Council, at its resolution, urged the parties to engage constructively on swift government formation at all levels and to prioritize the implementation of comprehensive reforms in an inclusive manner, and also to refrain from any polarizing unconstructive policy, action and rhetoric.
