US Under Secretary of State Derek Chollet and Special Envoy for the Western Balkans Gabriel Escobar declared that they would not allow anyone to dissolve Bosnia and Herzegovina.
While reporting on Bosnia and Herzegovina to the Senate Foreign Affairs Committee, the duo drew attention to the current situation in the country.
Recalling that the Dayton Peace Agreement, which ended the war in the country, did not provide a simple peace, Chollet said, “Those who violate the agreement suffer severe consequences.” He said.
Noting that the nationalist rhetoric is worrisome, Chollet said, “The Office of the High Representative has special powers, and that is positive. I think these forces have dealt a blow to ethno-nationalism.” He assessed it.
By mentioning the names on the USA blacklist, the duo also drew attention to the recent separatist rhetoric of Milorad Dodik, the president of Republika Srpska (RS), one of the two entities in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Emphasizing that Dodek’s anti-democratic actions worried them, Escobar said, “We will try to dissuade Dodek from his separatist rhetoric. Our sanctions will continue against government agencies and those who try to undermine the Dayton Peace Agreement.” Use phrases.
Escobar added that it is very important for Bosnia and Herzegovina to become a member of the European Union as soon as possible.
