Bosnia's capital has named Angelina Jolie its honorary citizen.

A statement issued by city's authorities Wednesday said it made the decision in recognition of Jolie's role in preserving the "truth about the war" in Bosnia, through her directorial debut "In the Land of Blood and Honey."

The spokeswoman for the Sarajevo Canton, Lamija Bojadzic, said Wednesday it was not yet clear if Jolie will attend a May 3 ceremony in Sarajevo.
