Instead of good neighbourly relations, Serbian Foreign Minister Ivica Dacic sends out “malicious messages of hatred and intolerance,” head of Bosnia's state government Denis Zvizdic said responding to the Serbian official who attended a political rally in the Bosnian town of Laktasi on Saturday.

Speaking at a rally of the Alliance of Independent Social Democrats (SNSD), the major Serb party in Bosnia, Ivica Dacic said Bosnia will never be a Muslim country suggesting that this is what the Bosniaks want.

Zvizdic assessed it as a “chauvinist-militarist statement” intended to put the Bosniaks in a negative context.

“In fact, this attempt of unscrupulous discrediting of the civilisational, moral and integrative role of the Bosniaks in preserving the integral, sovereign and multinational Bosnia and Herzegovina was incited by relapses of ultra-nationalist ideology which is based on mythomania and lies that were promoted and executed by Slobodan Milosevic (former and late Serbian President),” said Zvizdic, who is at the helm of the Bosnia's state government, formally known as the Council of Ministers.

He stressed that Bosniaks never launched a political or any other movement, intention or idea that does not see Bosnia and Herzegovina as a society of equal citizens regardless of their ethnic or religious affiliation.

“Bosniaks never asked for a 'Muslim' Bosnia. On contrary, Bosniaks, as well as all other citizens of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bosnian Serbs, Bosnian Croats and each and every citizen want the integral, united, democratic and European Bosnia and Herzegovina, as a multicultural society of equal opportunities,” he said and called on Serbia's official to stop “falsely accusing the Bosniaks.”
