SARAJEVO - Bosnia's trio of presidents said on Thursday they could not agree on whether to support a Palestinian Authority bid for full UN membership, with Sarajevo potentially holding a key vote in the UN Security Council.

Bosnia's presidency has been shared by leaders of its Muslim, Croat and Serb communities since its 1992-95 war.

In a statement after meeting Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman, the triumvirate said it had so far been unable to reach a joint position on the Palestinian application, reflecting the country's own ethnic divisions.
