President, Reuven Rivlin met on Monday with the Chairman of Bosnian Presidency, Mladen Ivanic, during his visit to the region.

Rivlin, who welcomed Ivanic at his residency in Jerusalem, said that he is looking forward to extend the relations between the two countries.

"We are looking forward in order to extend our relation and of course we will talk about the challenges that all of the world is facing just now, once we are talking about ISIS, about extremists, about fundamentalism, and about everything that goes along with that, I know that you have comments about the situation," Rivlin said.

Ivanic said that his country share the same problems and the potential solutions with Israel.

"But I agree with you, we share the same problems and maybe the same potential solutions. Bosnia and Herzegovina is very a specific country but very specific and just twenty years ago there was a real war, the 100 thousand that killed, citizens, millions of displaced persons and twenty years after we are more or less normal country," Ivanic said.

Ivanic's visit to the region is expected to last for two days.
