Milorad Dodik, the Serb member of Bosnia and Herzegovina's Presidency, said he would again impose a veto and ask the Serb entity's parliament to reverse any decision whereby the Presidency's two other members might outvote him concerning the Peljesac Bridge in Croatia.

“If I'm outvoted again and Sefik Dzaferovic and Zeljko Komsic create certain conclusions on the Peljesac Bridge again, I'll invoke vital interests again,” he was quoted as saying for Bosnian print media on Sunday.

Earlier this week, Republika Srpska’s entity parliament revoked by a two-thirds majority a decision by Dzaferovic and Komsic, the Presidency's Bosniak and Croat members, after Dodik vetoed their demand that construction on the Peljesac Bridge be stopped and that the two countries resolve the sea border issue, or they would file an international lawsuit.

Dodik said all outstanding issues with Croatia should be resolved through talks but without setting conditions or creating “new disputes that will last ten years or more.”

Komsic assumed the rotating chairmanship of the State Presidency from Dodik on Saturday, saying he would look for any way to implement the sea border demarcation and that he would insist on the country’s access to the high seas.
