By voting against the invitation to Montenegrin President Milo Djukanovic, Bosnian Serb Presidency member Milorad Dodik showed that he is not a serious politician, Croat Presidency member Zeljko Komsic told N1 Tuesday, adding that at the beginning of its mandate, Bosnia's tripartite Presidency sent out invitations to all the presidents from the region – including Djukanovic, to pay a visit to Bosnia.
"President Djukanovic has kindly and respectfully responded to the Bosnian Presidency's written invitation and he is always more than welcome to visit Bosnia,” Komsic said.
Bosnia and Montenegro have excellent bilateral relations that are constantly improving and are an example of good neighbourly relations in the region, Komsic recalled. He added that the proof of this is one of the decisions of Bosnia's Presidency adopted on Monday, to initiate the procedure for conducting negotiations with a view to concluding the Annex to the Agreement between the Council of Ministers (Bosnia's parliament) and the Government of Montenegro on conducting border checks at joint border crossings.
“I am convinced that good cooperation between our two countries that have no outstanding issues will continue in the future, despite the irresponsibility and lack of seriousness of individuals like Dodik," BiH Presidency Chairman Zeljko Komsic concluded in his reaction to N1.
Bosnia's Presidency Member Milorad Dodik told reporters in Sarajevo on Monday that he did not agree with the invitation to Montenegrin President Milo Djukanovic to pay a visit to Bosnia and Herzegovina "given the current situation in Montenegro."
