Dodik Says Bosnia “Irreversibly Divided”

Nov 22, 2010

Bosnia-Herzegovina is a country ‘irreversibly divided’ along ethnic lines, Bosnian Serb President Milorad Dodik told a Serbian paper Monday, 15 years after a peace deal ended the country’s inter-ethnic war in the 1990s.

“Bosnia is divided in an irreversible way” and “[the international community] will eventually get tired and understand that they are trying to bring together something that cannot be brought together,” Dodik told the Vecernji Novosti daily.

“They cannot build a [united] Bosnia without taking into account Serbs and Croats. I am convinced that this project, after all these years, is failing.”

“Fifteen years since the Dayton [peace agreement] it is clear that this attempt has failed,” Dodik said.

The peace deal reached in Dayton, Ohio, Nov. 21, 1995, ended the 1992-1995 war between Bosnia’s Croats, Muslims and Serbs.

It left the former Yugoslav republic split into two semi-autonomous halves–the Serb-run Republika Srpska and the Muslim Croat Federation.

The two entities are linked by weak central institutions while each has its own government.

The international community, notably the European Union, wants Bosnia and Herzegovina’s central institutions to be strengthened in order to implement reforms needed for the country’s integration in Europe.

Dodik, a former powerful Bosnian Serb prime minister, is opposing any strengthening of Bosnia-Herzegovina’s joint institutions at the expense of his entity’s autonomy.

However, while being sworn as Bosnian Serb president earlier this month, Dodik softened his nationalist rhetoric and called for inter-ethnic dialogue and a “basic consensus,” with the country’s Croats and Serbs.

Dodik calls U.S. diplomat "liar, troublemaker"

30 November 2010 | 12:59 -> 20:33 | Source: B92, Tanjug

BANJA LUKA, ZAGREB -- RS President Milorad Dodik has reacted to one Wikileaks cable that mentioned his name, as reported today in the Croatian media.


Milorad Dodik (FoNet, file)


According to U.S. diplomatic cables published by the whistleblowing website, Dodik - then prime minister of the Serb republic (RS) in Bosnia-Herzegovina - voiced his support for the so-called Ahtisaari plan.

The U.S. diplomat who reported that he uttered the words is a liar and and troublemaker, said Dodik on Tuesday.

The cable, sent in May 2007 by U.S. State Department official Daniel Fried, also quotes Dodik as saying that "Kosovo's recognition would follow after such a decision (to adopt the plan) by the UN Security Council".

UN envoy Martti Ahtrisaari drafted his plan for Kosovo's supervised independence, which the Kosovo Albanian authorities used as a base for their 2008 UDI. However, the plan was never adopted by the Security Council, and was rejected by Belgrade.

Getting in the spirit of the "cablegate", where published U.S. diplomatic documents compare world leaders "candidly" with Hitler and cartoon characters, Dodik used strong words to refute this report.

"My behavior regarding Kosovo is clear and I have demonstrated and proved it. As far as the fabled Fried, he has shown himself to be a troublemaker and a liar who tried to push through Kosovo's independence in many places," Dodik was quoted as saying.

"I never met with Fried alone, I never said those words to him, and he will never be able to find a witness to that," Dodik concluded.

Fried's cable came after his meeting with Croatian officials in the spring of 2007, according to reports.

Zagreb daily Jutarnji List printed some of the 1,686 cables sent from Zagreb that have been published thus far. One of them says that former Croat PM Ivo Sanader and President Stjepan Mesić referred to then Serbian PM Vojislav Koštunica as a "nationalist", because of his position on Kosovo, but they praised Serbian President Boris Tadić, whom they said "shared their way of thinking".

According to the report, Sanader also warned that in case Croats moved out of Bosnia and RS separated, the remainder of that country would constitute for a "small Islamic state in Europe", while Mesić agreed with this assessment.

But Fried told them that a third entity was "out of the question" in Bosnia, and that Croats in Bosnia "should come to the U.S. embassy in Sarajevo for help".

Bosnia celebrates "Statehood Day", but without Serbs

02/12/2010
By Jusuf Ramadanovic for Southeast European Times in Sarajevo – 01/12/10

Statehood Day, celebrated on Thursday (November 25th), is an impressive occasion. Around 400 high-ranking international and local officials -- including the Turkish, Montenegrin, Serbian and Romanian ambassadors to BiH -- attended this year's ceremonial reception at the Presidency Building in Sarajevo.

It commemorates a 1943 anti-fascist council which affirmed the statehood and territorial integrity of BiH, and seems a perfect candidate for a national holiday.

There's only one catch: a significant part of the country -- namely the Bosnian Serb entity, Republika Srpska (RS) -- has declined to observe it.

"I cannot say never, but I must say it's hardly likely," Serb state presidency member Nebojsa Radmanovic told the newspaper Vecernij List when asked if Banja Luka's position would change.

"A BiH holiday is something we all agree upon and if we cannot agree upon a certain date, there are some other dates we can agree upon. This date is important for the past of this country, but it is not a state holiday of Bosnia and Herzegovina," he said. "This should be taken into account by all, even those who are today attacking those who do not accept this day as the Statehood Day of Bosnia and Herzegovina." Radmanovic did not attend the official reception.

Meanwhile, a prominent RS politician was quoted as saying Sarajevo is to blame. "On several occasions, the representatives of the Serb people in the BiH state government have tried to reach an agreement on holidays, but this was not successful because the Bosniaks do not accept any agreements," said Dusanka Majkic, who chairs of the House of Peoples of BiH and is a member of RS President Milorad Dodik's SNSD party.

Political analyst Asim Mujkic, who is vice dean of Sarajevo University's political science department, said there are three reasons for the impasse: one legal, one political, and one having to do with values.

The legal reason, he says, has to do with a 1993 proclamation in Republika Srpska's Official Bulletin that declared the Serb people have withdrawn their signature from the 1943 council's agreement.

Politically, he said, RS does not recognize claims of historical continuity regarding the BiH state. In terms of values, a holiday which celebrates the coming together of three equal peoples in the fight against fascism does not jive well with the ethnic nationalist themes emphasized by RS politicians, who prefer to portray Serbs as an endangered people, beset by adversaries.

"Normalization does not suit them," Misic argued.

A resident of East Sarajevo in the RS, who did not want his name to be published, voiced indifference about the holiday. "What do I care what they celebrate in the Federation? We have our Republika Srpska, and we care about our dates," he said.

The BiH state parliament has not yet managed to pass a single state-level law on state holidays. Other proposed occasions -- March 1 (Independence Day) and July 11 (Anniversary of the Srebrenica Genocide) – are unacceptable to RS.

The 1943 council which Statehood Day memoralizes was held during the night of November 25th and the small hours of the following day. A total of 173 councilors assembled under cover of dark due to the danger of Nazi aviation attacks.

They declared BiH is neither Muslim, Serb, nor Croat, but is rather a country founded on all three constituent ethnicities, with none having an exclusive territorial right.

Two further sessions of the Zemaljsko Antifasisticko Vijeće Narodnog Oslobođenja BiH (ZAVNOBiH) were held, in 1944 and 1945, but the first is considered the most significant.

Dodik wants territory demarcated

17 December 2010 | 13:13 | Source: FoNet

PALE -- RS President Milorad Dodik said that the Serb entity will mark the inter-ethnic border, "whether someone likes it or not".

The post-war Bosnia is made up of the Serb entity (RS), and the Muslim-Croat Federation.

Dodik spoke in Pale, East Sarajevo, on Thursday, and said that with its stand on this issue, the Office of the High Representative (OHR) in Bosnia "demonstrated that its existence was pointless".

Dodik concluded that it was obvious that a desire not to mark the inter-ethnic boundaries "had to do with political motives which could only be guessed".

“The marking of the line is necessary for purely pragmatic reasons. It is determined and not disputed, but it should be carried to the field, because the census is approaching, and there are problems with land registers,” he said.

According to Dodik, the RS would do "whatever it takes to secure adequate protection of its interests".

“Anex II of the Dayton Agreement has not been implemented because in the last ten years the Bosniaks (Muslims) didn’t want to participate actively in a joint commission for marking the line,” said Dodik.

“With the marking of the line we wish to show all the negligence of the international factor in Bosnia-Herzegovina, mainly the international representative and the OHR, not just the current one, whenever it came to any important project relevant for the realization of the Dayton Agreement and for the RS,” Dodik stated.

No OHR and the Peace Implementation Council official has said that the Law on Government Property was "unconstitutional and anti-Dayton", because the representatives of RS were right, noted Dodik.

“Now they pressure us not to sign and not to publish the law. I’m waiting to receive the law from the court and I’ll sign it immediately. The law didn’t need to be passed, but it was passed because they wanted to create a problem, primarily for the Republic of Srpska,” Dodik concluded.

1993 massacre victims remembered

6 January 2011 | 11:44 | Source: Tanjug

BANJA LUKA -- The village of Kravice, in eastern Bosnia, held on Wednesday a memorial service to mark 18 years since the murder of 49 of its villagers.

The Bosnian Muslim forces commanded by Naser Orić killed the Serbs on Orthodox Christmas morning, January 7, 1993.

80 more were injured and seven are still listed as missing. The attackers torched 688 Serb homes and over 200 other facilities. The massacre left 101 children without one or both parents.

The memorial today was followed by a commemoration of some 3,400 Serbs who were killed in the eastern Bosnia region during the 1992-95 war.

The ceremonies were attended by many local officials and organizations of war veterans and families of those killed, imprisoned or gone missing during the war.

Kravica residents expressed grief for their lost loved ones and indignation over the fact that no one has been punished for the crime during the past 18 years.

Diplomatic spat brews in Bosnia as Serb leader confronts EU overseer

Jan 6, 2011, 13:43 GMT

Sarajevo - The leader of Bosnia's Serbs risked a diplomatic spat Thursday by attacking the authority of the international representative who has ultimate decision-making powers over the Balkan country, media reported.

Decisions made by High Representative Valentin Inzko, who also serves as the European Union's special representative for Bosnia, 'have no meaning to us,' Milorad Dodik was quoted as saying.

The representative's post was created following the 1995 Dayton agreement, which put an end to three-and-a-half years of civil war and fixed Bosnia's borders. Dodik has often challenged the terms of the agreement and threatened to secede.

Dodik's latest outburst was provoked when Inzko on Wednesday suspended a law that was to grant the country's Serb-dominated region ownership of state property within its borders. The legislation is to first be reviewed by the Constitutional Court.

The representative has the right, in extreme cases, to overrule and sanction national politicians - but western diplomats in Sarajevo said Inzko is unlikely to try to remove Dodik for his obstructiveness because he is backed by Russia.

The United States and the European Union are firmly behind Inzko.

Arguments over Bosnia's institutional set-up and the related power struggles between its Muslim, Serb, and Croat politicians has mired the country in political deadlock for years, an obstacle to its United Nations and European Union membership hopes.

“OHR should withdraw from Bosnia”

12 January 2011 | 13:43 | Source: Beta

SARAJEVO -- The lead international role in Bosnia-Herzegovina should in 2011shift from the Office of the High Representative (OHR) to a reinforced EU delegation.


OHR should withdraw from domestic politics and, unless a threat to peace emerges, focus on reviewing past decisions,the International Crisis Group says.

The International Crisis Group has called upon Brussels “to name, without extending what is already a six-month delay, a strong ambassador to head the EU Delegation in Sarajevo, ideally a former member-state senior official with solid EU experience in, particularly, enlargement issues”.

“Reform is urgently needed to avert political and economic crisis, but the OHR is no longer the entity that can cajole Bosniak, Serb and Croat leaders into change,” the International Crisis Group pointed out in the report.

“Bosnians do manage their affairs without significant help. While the Peace Implementation Council (PIC) and Bosnian elites have debated OHR’s fate, much of the transition to domestic responsibility has quietly happened. State institutions have full use of the property they need, despite lack of clear ownership status. Ownership will have to be established sooner or later, to allow for re-sale and investment, but this is not urgent,” the report reads.

OHR’s strongest local advocates, the left-leaning Social Democratic Party (SDP) and the centrist Party for Democratic Action (SDA), both predominantly supported by Bosniaks, are coming to terms with life without an international governor.

The report explains that the OHR staff is “frustrated” over the present situation and their inability to influence political developments.

“In the event of a threat to territorial integrity and advised by their on-the-ground ambassadors, the EU, the U.S. and others in the international community could muster the political will and military means to act, whether OHR remains or not,” the International Crisis Group concluded.
What about the threat to Serbia's territorial integrity?

What this means is that if the Bosnian Serbs push for independence NATO will bomb again. The 'International Crisis Group' is the creator of crisis and violence around the world.




One of the comments

Isn't it interesting how some people like to be ruled by others and some people like to be free and independent (Serbs)? Nothing much changes and history keeps repeating itself. This is the main reason the imperial powers had it in for Serbs, they prefer obedient lackies just like all our neighbours.
Anybody who wants to be ruled by Inzko, an Austrian, should move there. He is definitely not welcome on Serbian soil.
Cheers

Bosnian official cancels meeting with Turkish FM

30 January 2011 | 15:18 | Source: Tanjug

BANJA LUKA -- Bosnia-Herzegovina Presidency Chairman Nebojša Radmanović cancelled a meeting with Turkish FM Ahmet Davutoglu on Saturday, following a diplomatic incident.




The Turkish delegation demanded that the flag of the Republic of Srpska (RS) be removed from the conference room, Radmanović’s cabinet has announced.

Aside from that, the meeting was also cancelled because the Turkish foreign minister was 75 minutes late for the meeting which had already been postponed, it is added in the announcement.

“We believe that such a move on the part of Turkey is unacceptable behavior and a diplomatic incident that will surely have consequences,” Radmanović’s office said in the statement, adding that the Bosnian Presidency chairman had agreed to meet with Davutoglu even though the meeting had not been requested on time which was contrary to diplomatic practice.

Witness arrested on Hague warrant

15 February 2011 | 15:05 | Source: Beta

SARAJEVO, THE HAGUE -- The Hague Tribunal has charged a Sarajevo-based professor and witness in the Karadžić trial with contempt of court.

Berko Zečević previously refused to testify for the prosecution in the process.

The war crimes tribunal in January issued a binding order for him to testify, but Zečević refused and was subsequently arrested in Sarajevo.

The tribunal this morning decided to accept a request lodged by Radovan Karadžić and remove the confidential label from the indictment against Zečević, as well as the arrest warrant and other documents.

Zečević, who teaches at the Faculty of Technology in Sarajevo, previously accepted to testify as expert witness for the Hague prosecution in the trials against Slobodan Milošević and Stanislav Galić.

He testified that two explosions in the Markale market, that took place in 1994 and 1995 and killed and wounded dozens of Sarajevo residents, were caused by shells fired from the Bosnian Serb positions.

Karadžić, a former political leader of Bosnia's Serbs, is standing trial on charges of war crimes and genocide, including those related to terrorizing Sarajevo residents with a campaign of artillery and sniper attacks.

The Markale incident was a staged event, its purpose being to begin air strikes against the RS.

Bosnian war crimes court charges Montenegrin with murder, torture and rape of civilians

A Bosnian court has charged a Montenegrin man with murder, torture and enslavement of civilians during the country's 1992-95 war.

The Bosnian war crimes court said on Friday it has confirmed the indictment against Veselin Vlahovic, charging him with crimes against humanity, including "murder, enslavement, rape, illegal detention, physical and psychological abuse" of civilians, offences allegedly committed while he was fighting for the Serb side during the conflict.

Independence Day marked in part of Bosnia

1 March 2011 | 11:34 | Source: Beta

SARAJEVO -- The Muslim-Croat Federation entity of Bosnia-Herzegovina is today marking Independence Day, a holiday in that part of Bosnia.

At the same time, in the second entity - the Serb republic (RS) - the day is not being marked.

On March 1, 1992, 64 percent of those who took part in a referendum in then Yugoslav republic of Bosnia-Herzegovina voted in favor of making it "an independent state of all its citizens and equal nations".

The referendum was held on the recommendation of the so-called Badinter Arbitrage Commission, in the last stages of the breakup of the former Yugoslavia.

Soon after, the Bosnian war started, and lasted for three years, leaving an estimated 100,000 people dead.

Muslim and Croat members of Bosnia's three-member presidency Bakir Izetbegović and Željko Komšić will take part in today's ceremonies in Sarajevo.

Bosnia Serbs will arrest Bosnian war suspects

10 Mar 2011 19:46

Source: reuters // Reuters


BANJA LUKA, Bosnia, March 10 (Reuters) - Police in Bosnia's Serb Republic will arrest any Bosnian official on its territory suspected of committing war crimes against Serbs, the region's president said on Thursday.

Milorad Dodik's announcement was an angry response to an Austrian court this week granting bail to a retired general of the Bosnian Muslim-dominated army who was detained on a warrant from Serbia for war crimes charges.

Dodik criticised international and local Muslim and Croat officials for openly defending Jovan Divjak, an ethnic Serb who defected from the former Yugoslav army after it attacked Sarajevo in April 1992 and joined Bosnian forces.

Bosnian Serbs support Belgrade in its efforts to try 18 top Bosnian wartime officials over an attack on a Yugoslav army column withdrawing from Sarajevo in May 1992, when a number of soldiers were killed and wounded, and many arrested.

Many of the 18 are prominent citizens today, including a university director and Divjak, who heads a charitable organisation to help war orphans with scholarships. Austria said this week it would not extradite Divjak.

Bosnian state investigators have probed citizens of its three main ethnic groups and say they are looking into the cases of the 18 men. Dodik is in effect disregarding national judicial authorities and taking his lead from Serbian prosecutors.

The Bosnian Serb leader is known for his separatist rethoric and moves undermining the central authority of the ethnically divided Balkan country, and he again threatened secession of his region.

"We don't need such a Bosnia-Herzegovina and if the situation continues in this way, dissolution will be inevitable," Dodik told a news conference.

"I am convinced in this mission (secession) and I will fight for it. Maybe the moment is not right now but I will not give up that goal," Dodik said.

The Balkan country is made up of the Serb Republic and the Muslim-Croat federation, the autonomous regions which co-exist in an uneasy alliance under a weak central cabinet.

Muslim-Croat Federation govt. “not legitimate”

19 March 2011 | 11:32 | Source: Tanjug

BANJA LUKA -- Republic of Srpska (RS) President Milorad Dodik says that new government of the Muslim-Croat Federation of Bosnia-Herzegovina has no legality or legitimacy.


He added that the new government had not been verified by the Bosnia-Herzegovina Central Electoral Commission.

Dodik warned and said that although some people in the RS might think that this matter did not concern them, it did concern the RS very much because if such modes of government constitution were tolerated, one day Bosnia-Herzegovina would come to face requests for legitimization of one nation's dominance, that is the dominance of Bosniaks over all other ethnicities in Bosnia-Herzegovina.

He announced that he would call a meeting with leaders of caucus whips on Saturday, during which RS' stand on this issue would be discussed.

Dodik expressed belief that a parliament sitting needed to be organized so as to adopt a resolution or a declaration in which the RS would say it would not allow basic principles of the Dayton Agreement to be ignored.

He underscored that this was the point that concerned the RS and that a clear message should be sent to all relevant sides in this matter.

The RS president said that the constitution of the government in the Federation of Bosnia-Herzegovina was an arrogant, pretentious and forced act, and added that the main problem for the RS right now was the question of what approach it should take when it comes to joint institutions on the level of Bosnia-Herzegovina as a country, such as the Indirect Taxation Authority, electro-transfer and other joint tasks the RS is supposed to perform together with the government of the Muslim-Croat federation.

According to the RS president, the RS needs to provide an answer to the question of whether it will cooperate with the Federation of Bosnia-Herzegovina government or not.

“If the RS decides to cooperate, it would imply it has recognized the legitimacy of the new government, and since RS does not recognize its legitimacy, it cannot cooperate with the government of the Federation of Bosnia-Herzegovina,” Dodik said and added that Bosnia-Herzegovina had come to face a very complex situation.

The new government's legitimacy and legality is also questioned by two Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ) parties which did not participate in its constitution.

Dodik: High rep suspends credibility

Source: Tanjug

BANJA LUKA -- Milorad Dodik says the move to suspend decisions made by the Bosnian Election Commission (CIK) in turn suspended the credibility of the international community.

The decision was announced yesterday in Sarajevo by High Representative Valentin Inzko's office, and refers to Bosnia's other entity - the Muslim-Croat Federation.

But Dodik, who is president of the country's post-war Serb entity, the Serb Republic (RS), criticized the decision, saying it "suspended what little credibility the international community had in Bosnia-Herzegovina".

In a written statement sent to the media, Dodik described Inzko's decision as trampling on the domestic legal system and a violation of the Dayton Peace Accord.

He added that the high international representative placed himself above the law, "yet again crudely interfering in a sovereign country's internal affairs and annulling its voters' will expressed in elections".

Dodik said that the CIK was the only body in Bosnia-Herzegovina that was authorized to organize and verify election results, adding that this made Inzko's explanation that his decision was not replacing any domestic organ of authority "almost ridiculous - unless he considered the CIK a body of the international community".

"Should the high representative remain in Bosnia-Herzegovina, we expect him to next decide to suspend elections, and to have the OHR (Office of the High Representative) form the government seamlessly. That is, should Bosnia-Herzegovina survive that long," wrote Dodik.

Previously, the OHR announced that the suspension of the CIK decisions removed legal ambiguities concerning the status of organs of authority of the Federation, pending the Constitutional Court's answer on the legitimacy of the new organs of authority, submitted by the Federation representatives who previously held those positions.

Default Serbia can break up but not an artificial 'state' like Bosnia

High rep wary of "Milošević's posthumous triumph"

Source: Tanjug

BRUSSELS -- Any discussion about the dissolution of Bosnia-Herzegovina would represent a posthumous victory of Slobodan Milošević, says Valentin Inzko.



Inzko, who serves in Bosnia as international high representative, said in Brussels on Monday that the breakup of the that country would be "unacceptable for the international community".

"That would represent a posthumous triumph of Milošević. If a new state were to be created in the region, that would represent a triumph of (Radovan) Karadžić," Inzko believes.

The Austrian diplomat also touched on the subject of football, to express his regret at "the stubborn rejection of the Football Federation of Bosnia-Herzegovina to introduce reforms", which resulted in the Bosnia football squad disqualification from international competitions.

Inzko also said that "if there are issues on which almost all Bosnians agree, they are European agenda and football".

Still on the subject of EU integrations, Inzko noted that the inability to form central authorities of Bosnia-Herzegovina displayed in the past six months meant that the country was "lagging behind the rest of the region in European integrations, despite the resources that gave it huge potential".

"We must give Bosnia a chance," concluded Inzko.

Bosnia: High representative "to annul referendum"

Source: FoNet

SARAJEVO -- The international representative in Bosnia-Herzegovina will use the so-called Bonn powers to annul a decision to call a referendum in the Serb republic (RS).

Reports said that this decision will be published in Bosnia's Official Gazette.

According to diplomatic sources in Sarajevo, Valentin Inzko also intends to "sanction" a number of officials, including RS President Milorad Dodik and RS Parliament Speaker Igor Radojičić.

The unspecified sanctions could also go against RS government officials and leaders of political parties that supported the referendum, or directly cooperate with Dodik, according to this.

The Serb entity's broadcaster RTRS reported that the National Assembly in Banja Luka on April 13 decided to call a referendum where the RS citizens would have a say on the decisions imposed by the high representative, specifically the Bosnia-Herzegovina Court and Prosecution, which were set up in 2003.

The referendum is scheduled to take place 45 days after the decision comes into force.

The 1995 Dayton peace deal ended the war in Bosnia, which is now made up of the Serb entity (RS), and the Muslim-Croat Federation of Bosnia-Herzegovina.

“It would be wrong to cancel RS referendum”

Source: Tanjug

BANJA LUKA -- If Serbs and Croats leave Bosnian institutions, Bosniaks may end up controlling the entire state, International Crisis Group President Louise Arbour has warned.

She believes that it would therefore be wrong to cancel a decision to hold a referendum in the Republic of Srpska (RS).

In a letter to top EU officials, Arbour said that the situation in Bosnia-Herzegovina was “increasingly worrying” and that the International Crisis Group was afraid that Serbs and Croats would leave the state institutions.

“If this happens, a situation will occur in which Bosniak parties will control a failed and bankrupt state, whose institutions have been left by the Serbs and Croats,” the first Hague Tribunal chief prosecutor said.

She pointed out that the high representative’s decision to suspend the Central Elections Committee (CIK) decision which canceled the forming of the federal government and the right to appeal to the decision had undermined the state bodies and the rule of law and that it would be even worse if the decision was followed by an attempt to cancel the RS’ decision to hold the referendum.

“It would be even worse if an attempt to cancel the RS’ decision on referendum or to impose sanctions against entity’s President Milorad Dodik followed the decision, because such attempts would probably encounter rejection and it would make the referendum campaign even more destabilizing,” Arbour pointed out in the letter.

“This is why the international community should avoid making hasty decisions that could deepen the crisis and push the parties toward maximalist positions,” she stressed.

The International Crisis Group president added that everybody involved bore responsibility for the current crisis, including the international community.

RS given deadline to cancel referendum

Source: FoNet, Beta

BELGRADE -- Valentin Inzko says the authorities of the Republic of Srpska (RS) had been given a seven-day deadline to annul their decision calling a referendum.

The Serb entity is to go to the referendum in June and have a say on the Bosnian Court and Prosecution.

The high internatinal representative told BN TV that he would go to the United States, so that he could notify UN officials, and later U.S. officials about the situation in Bosnia-Herzegovina.

"Following my return from America, I shall see whether the referendum decision has been withdrawn. We are waiting to see the actions of the RS government. If they do not annul the referendum decision, we shall do that instead," Inzko said.

He said that both RS President Milorad Dodik and RS Parliamentary Speaker Igor Radojičić had already been notified about this deadline.

Meanwhile, Dodik was quoted as saying that he "had no intention" to suspend the referendum decision.

Dodik told Radio Belgrade on Thursday that he was "suspicious whether Inzko can annul any decision".

"In order for him to reach a decision that can be implemented, it would have to be published in the Official Gazette. We are not going to publish that in the Official Gazette," concluded the RS president.
