[April 26, 2010]  SARAJEVO, Bosnia-Herzegovina (AP) -- The Iranian foreign minister has arrived in Sarajevo for talks with Bosnian leaders as part of a campaign to avert another round of U.N. sanctions.

After making little progress in Austria over the weekend, Manouchehr Mottaki was trying Monday to attempt to convince another non-permanent member of the U.N. Security Council not to support sanctions.

Bosnia's Security Council vote is decided by a tri-member presidency composed of a Muslim Bosnian, or Bosniak, a Christian Orthodox Serb and a Catholic Croat.

Bosnian Muslims feel grateful toward both the U.S. and Iran for helping them during Bosnia's 1992-5 war.
