Russian Ambassador: Main Bosniak party's declaration only complicates things Izvor: Fena

The main Bosniak party's goals adopted in the form of a declaration during the Saturday congress in Sarajevo are contrary to the Dayton Peace Agreement that ended the 1992-1995 war in Bosnia, and they do not represent new and alternative ideas, Russian Ambassador Peter Ivantsov said on Monday.

“The Democratic Action Party's Congress documents suggest a Constitutional reform, reviewing of principles of Bosnia's administrative and territorial organisations, including the name change of the country, as well as the institutional transformation of the system of government, which is contrary to the Dayton Peace Agreement that guarantees the equality of all three constituent peoples and broad powers to the country's both entities,” Ivantsov said.

Considering everything stated in the declaration, Ivantsov finds the Croat and Serb parties' rejection of the goals natural adding that such statements only complicate things in the situation where Bosnia was not able to form the government one year after the general election.

Last Saturday, the SDA held a party congress in Sarajevo where they adopted a declaration, outlining the party's future goals. Some of those goals include the creation of a democratic, regionalised, lawful and social state under the name of ‘Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina,’ which should have state, regional and local governments.

The declaration also said that all party members remain committed to Bosnia's NATO and EU membership and promoting the idea of the creation of a common state identity - Bosnians.
