EU countries agreed Tuesday to grant Bosnia "candidate status" to join the union, diplomats told AFP, putting the volatile Balkan nation at the start of a long road to membership.

European affairs ministers meeting in Brussels gave the green light to the move after the bloc's executive arm in October recommended that they launch the membership process.
