Bosnian Serb leader Milorad Dodik held a press conference in Banja Luka, where he made several bold claims about the situation in Republika Srpska and the future of Bosnia and Herzegovina. He accused the USA of trying to rule the country like a colonial power and announced his intention to dissolve Bosnia and Herzegovina. Dodik claims that only the RS would survive as an independent entity.
Dodik criticized the Dayton Agreement, calling it a failure and claiming that only fragments of it remain. He believes that the best solution is the peaceful disunification of Bosnia and Herzegovina and hopes that elections in the US and the EU next year could lead to better interlocutors for Republika Srpska.
The Bosnian Serb leader also expressed his optimism about the situation in Republika Srpska, claiming that it is actually better than in European countries like Germany. He stated that the policy of sanctions encouraged by the USA has created problems for RS, making it difficult for the entity to access western financial markets. However, he believes that this has not affected the overall financial stability of Republika Srpska. Dodik’s bold claims and his criticism of the Dayton Agreement have sparked controversy and debate.
