Angelina Jolie: Bosnia with Brad Pitt!
Angelina Jolie shares a laugh with a displaced Bosnian woman in the eastern Bosnian town of Gorazde over the weekend.
The 34-year-old UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador and her partner Brad Pitt also visited refugees near the eastern Bosnian towns of Visegrad and Medjedja.
“After seeing these people and hearing their stories, I cannot overemphasize the need to focus on the well-being of the most vulnerable individuals of the population,” Angie said, adding that “…by ending displacement and ensuring quality of life, we can help to promote progress and long-term stability.”
Angie added, “I hope we can find solutions for the remaining tens of thousands of displaced people …only then can we really close one of the most tragic chapters in modern history. [I hope] to return to this beautiful country soon and meet with political representatives to further discuss the solutions that are so badly required… Bosnia and Herzegovina now has the opportunity to move forward by ending displacement and further capitalizing on the EU accession process. The local leadership has the ultimate responsibility to make choices to ensure that this will happen.”
