GASIFICATION OF SRPSKA AND FAILURE TO FORM AUTHORITIES IN BiH TO BE DISCUSSED WITH MEDVEDEV

 

BELGRADE, OCTOBER 19 /SRNA/ - Serb member of the Bosnia and Herzegovina Presidency Milorad Dodik stated that he is going to discuss with Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev the gasification of Republika Srpska project as well the political situation in Srpska regarding the formation of authorities at the BiH level on Saturday.

 

Dodik told the press at the Batajnica airport, ahead of a military exercise “Liberty 2019” that he would discuss other forms of cooperation with Medvedev as well.

"Republika Srpska intends to join the TurkStream pipeline. That depends on the time the pipeline arrives in Serbia, then it will stretch into Srpska too,” said Dodik.

He stated that Srpska representatives had previously agreed certain arrangements with Gazprom management, a topic that he would also discuss with Medvedev.

The BiH Presidency Serb member noted that he and the Russian prime minister would discuss other forms of cooperation, including economy.

"I will inform him about the political situation in Republika Srpska and the problems that emerged regarding the failure to form authorities in BiH,” said Dodik, who will also discuss the situation in the Russian Federation and Russia’s plans for economic and every other cooperation with Medvedev.

Dodik said that the fact that Serbia and Russia had had excellent cooperation for a long time, which was also important from the viewpoint of Kosovo and Metohija.

"Russia’s position has proved neutral. They support the local authorities and don’t meddle in internal matters, they have their military and political priorities and Russia did not recognise Kosovo,” said Dodik.

Talking about BiH, Dodik reiterated that Russia stood behind the Dayton Peace Agreement and that its position about it was clearly stated several times and was proved through a long period of time.

Dodik noted that Moscow had a clear stance within the UN too, and that thanks to Russia, one could also hear the Republika Srpska’s stance in the Security Council.

"Thanks to Russia there is a chance to hear our side, because the high representative in BiH has been manipulating for years, most frequently with the situation in Republika Srpska,” said Dodik.

He noted that the UN Security Council would hold a session about the situation in BiH either late this month and early the next.

"We are preparing to write a report which we will submit primarily to our friend, the Russian Ambassador to BiH, Petr Ivantsov,” said Dodik. /end/dš
