Bosnia and Herzegovina officials responded to the statement made by Milorad Dodik, President of Republika Srpska, one of the two entities in Bosnia and Herzegovina, that Republika Srpska should be a joint state with Serbia.
Dodik made a statement at a party he attended, saying that he would continue to fight for Serbs to gain their freedom and said, “This is not a threat, it is just the desire of the people of Republika Srpska to be in their place. We would like Republika Srpska and Serbia to become a joint state one day.” He said.
Claiming that the national identity of Serbs is unacceptable, Dodik said, “We are not Bosnian Serbs. Wherever we live, we are the Serbian people.” Use phrases.
The “Greater Serbia” project is not dead
Bosnia and Herzegovina officials reacted strongly to the recent statements of Dodik, who has been on the agenda with his separatist rhetoric recently.
Denis Beserović, a Bosnian member of the Presidency Council of Bosnia and Herzegovina, stated that Dodik’s “scandalous” statement is proof of the existence of the “Greater Serbia” project, and said, “The project that dragged Bosnia and Herzegovina into the war in the 1990s and where the genocide against Bosniaks remained alive.” Having a plan aimed at presenting the Republic of Serbia as a state and uniting it with Serbia.” He said.
Noting that the political silence in the country further emboldened Dodik, Bešerović stressed that everyone, especially the judicial authorities, should take heed of Dodik’s statements.
Croatian member of the council, Zeljko Komcic, said Dodik was acting “as usual” and said: “Today he has just made his goal clear. That is, to give part of Bosnia and Herzegovina to Serbia. This was also the desired situation in the 1992-1995 war. We see that they have not given up on this “. He rated it.
“Let’s play paintball with those who talk about conflict”
The Minister of Foreign Affairs of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Elmedin Konakovich, invited Dodik to a paintball match and said, “Let’s have a paintball match for 15 days with those who talk about conflict. Let’s see how the nights are spent in the forests where others want to send their children.” He said.
Representatives of the Memorial Center in Srebrenica, where genocide took place and more than 8,000 Bosnian civilians were killed during the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina, expressed their strong condemnation of Dodik’s statements.
By the way, it is noteworthy that Dodik has made repeated statements that Republika Srpska will leave Bosnia and Herzegovina in recent months.
