SARAJEVO, Bosnia-Herzegovina, May 19 (UPI) -- U.S. Vice President Joe Biden arrived Tuesday in Sarajevo for talks with leaders of Bosnia-Herzegovina, the first stop on his three-country Balkan tour.

Biden's Air Force Two landed at Sarajevo airport before dawn and was welcomed by U.S. Ambassador to Bosnia Charles English, Bosnian Foreign Minister Sven Alkalaj and Sarajevo Mayor Alija Behmen, the sarajevo-x.com Web site said.

Javier Solana, foreign policy chief of the European Union, and Valentin Inzko, EU special representative and the world's envoy to Bosnia are accompanying Biden at his talks with Bosnia's leaders.

Biden is to travel to Belgrade Wednesday for talks with Serbian leaders, and Thursday will visit Pristina for talks with leaders of Kosovo, where he will tour the U.S. Bondsteel military base for talks with U.S. and NATO officials.
