While reacting on the report that members of SFOR blocked in Luka Ploce the delivery of 126 howitzers of calibre 155 mm and suitable ammunition for FB&H, because their military forces already surpassed the quota for artillery, he said that this is the indication that the agreed limits are not respected.
