Cooperation between Bosnia’s Republika Srpska (RS) entity and Serbia has never been better, BiH Presidency member, Milorad Dodik, said after meeting with Serbia’s President, Aleksandar Vucic, adding that he will not change "the basic elements" of his policy.
Dodik said that various political actors are trying to “endanger the RS” and that he informed the Serbian President about that.
“I informed him about the pressure on the RS and its leadership, and that it is now internationalised with sanctions. I have no explanation for it other than the sick illusions of the British”, he said.
The UK Government recently imposed sanctions against Dodik and the President of the country’s Republika Srpska (RS) entity, Zeljka Cvijanovic, for “undermining of the legitimacy and functionality of Bosnia and Herzegovina.”
Dodik said that this was to be expected from the UK.
“I will continue my involvement in politics. I will my job and I have no intention of changing the basic elements of my policy,” he said.
Dodik said he believes Vucic understands that the High Representative of the international community in BiH, Christian Schmidt, is working against the RS.
Dodik never accepted Schmidt’s authority in BiH and accused him of “trying to confiscate its property.”
Schmidt recently used his Bonn Powers to suspend the Law on Immovable Property in the RS.
