Dodik: Position of US Embassy inadmissible

Milici – Republika Srpska President Milorad Dodik said today that the position of the US Embassy as presented on the occasion of the observance of the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the Great War, namely, that Republika Srpska political leaders “missed an opportunity to demonstrate commitment to joint European values and reconciliation,” is unfair and inadmissible.
“In the last while, I have been doing my utmost not to get involved in public polemics on certain issues, but if this concerns Republika Srpska and BiH, then, at the very least, it is improper to make such qualifications. Though this comes from Americans, still such interference in local matters is too much,” Dodik told reporters in Milici.

Commenting on the position of the US Embassy that “it is shameful that Republika Srpska political leaders tried to score political points” by criticising the Istocno Sarajevo Mayor in connection with his participation in last week’s cycling race, in the organising of which both Sarajevo and Istocno Sarajevo took part, Dodik said that this only speaks of the collusion between foreign factors and domestic converts.

Dodik reiterated that it is clear to everyone that BiH is a failed country and that this is merely confirmed by such behaviour of the Bosniak side and the US Embassy.
