Bilateral Affairs Jasmina Pasalic on January 5, soliciting
Bosnia's assistance in encouraging Iran to free Amcits who
have been imprisoned. Post provided para 7 of reftel as
non-paper to Pasalic.

her concern generally about the use of detention and other
practices in Iran against students, protesters, and others
the regime seeks to pressure, and appeared knowledgeable
about Iran-related issues generally.

BiH ambassador on his way out to Tehran, and committed to
providing him the non-paper regarding the Amcit cases.
