Angelina Jolie has said she is grateful and proud to have officially been named an honorary citizen of Sarajevo and that she will visit the city this summer to personally express her gratitude.

The Hollywood star was given the honour at a ceremony this week as a result of her movie In The Land Of Blood And Honey, a love story set against the backdrop of the Bosnian war.

A statement previously issued by the city's authorities said it made the decision in recognition of the star's role in preserving the "truth about the war" in Bosnia through the film, which marked her directorial debut.

In an audio message played during the ceremony on Thursday, the actress said she was "proud to now be a part of such an extraordinary part of the world and fellow citizen to the people I deeply love and admire".

Angelina was invited to attend the ceremony but said in her message she would be able to visit in July.
