BiH’s Foreign Trade and Economic Relations Minister, Stasa Kosarac, said there are indications that certain arms industry companies in Bosnia’s Federation (FBiH) entity intend to export weapons and military equipment to Ukraine and that BiH’s Republika Srpska (RS) entity does not support this.

“I must clearly emphasize that there is no support from us from Republika Srpska for such activities. We will closely monitor such tendencies and, in accordance with positive legal regulations, prevent potential exports to the Ukrainian market,” Kosarac said.

He said that warnings about these alleged intentions primarily came from representatives of the business community and certain institutions.

“This is completely unacceptable for us. We believe that this is a wrong approach and we will definitely stop such intentions,” he said.
