Bosnian Serb Presidency member Milorad Dodik's move casts a shadow on the good relations between Bosnia and Montenegro which serve as an example of cooperation and friendship between two countries, Montenegrin Ambassador to Bosnia Milos Stanic told N1 on Tuesday.
On Monday, the Serb member of Bosnia's tripartite Presidency voted against Montenegrin President Milo Djukanovic's the official visit to Bosnia, despite the fact that he signed a written invitation to Djukanovic several months earlier, after taking office.
“That move was surprising, to say the least. Serb Presidency member Milorad Dodik has denied the Montenegrin President's official bilateral visit (to Bosnia). That move will only harm Bosnia,” Stanisic said.
He added that Montenegro is Bosnia's honest partner.
“Montenegro is a friendly country. I believe that this move harms the good relations between our two countries. I think the Presidency will make the right decision in the coming days,” Stanisic noted. “Montenegrin President Djukanovic is an honest friend of Bosnia and Herzegovina, as well. Dodik's move casts a shadow on everything that is good and exemplary (between the two states).”
Stanisic pointed out that no one should worry about Montenegro's internal affairs because it is an internationally recognised country and a NATO member state, noting that Montenegro is ready to resolve all its problems by itself.
