Dodik: I was not calling for secession of Republika Srpska

Dodik: I was not calling for secession of Republika Srpska
RS President, Milorad Dodik, stated on Thursday he was never interceding for secession of RS from BiH, and that this insinuation was “a set up”.

Dodik said that RS did not destroy anything "but is clearly against the institutions that were established without the constitutional and legal basis, and only spend joint funds".

He stressed that "the High Representative has nothing more to deal with the internal matters of BiH".

Dodik said that the International Community should reduce its commitment to "normal level".

RS President claims he was not avoiding the talk about the forming of the government at the level of BiH, but that the problem are actually Bosniak political elites, primarily SDP President, Zlatko Lagumdzija, whom he accused of "changing the fundamental Dayton principles of representation of constituent peoples".

Talking about the arrest of Ratko Mladic and the crime in Srebrenica, Dodik said that everyone should be held responsible for their own guilt, but also that "there is a bitter feeling that the crimes against Serbs by far do not have the same attention and treatment as the crimes committed by Serbs against others”.

Dodik does not deny that the crime of great proportions was committed in Srebrenica and the guilty must be punished, but he believes that "those who rushed with the qualification of a crime as of genocide did it for political reasons".

RS President accentuated that RS "implemented all the requirements of the Hague Tribunal and not hide any suspect".
