Milorad Dodik, President of Republika Srpska, one of the two autonomous entities that form Bosnia and Herzegovina, warned that the United States is dangerously undermining the rule of law in the fragile Balkan nation and destabilizing the region.
Dodik said that the U.S. Embassy and its ambassador are not authorized to negotiate or agree to any solutions on behalf of Bosnia and Herzegovina and its peoples.
“Their interference in the work of the judicial system, as well as their role in political processes, are obvious,” Dodik pointed out. “Without any hesitation, they give instructions to judicial institutions on how to perform their work.”
The President of Republika Srpska also pointed out various contradictions that have come out of Brussels in recent months. “One day they expressed support for a solution, and the next day they criticized the same. We are not ready to allow [Michael] Murphy, who is supposedly the American ambassador, to lead processes on our behalf and make decisions through [Christian] Schmidt that can only be made by elected representatives of the people.”
“The Brussels administration needs to show that it truly wants a sovereign Bosnia and Herzegovina and to stop following Murphy's crazy narrative. We are not ready to allow someone to play with us and experiment with laws and the Constitution,” Dodik added.
“A new time is coming and in a matter of days when we will see a new international policy,” Dodik continued. “Murphy and troublemakers like him, who are engaged in criminal activities with Schmidt, cannot do here [in Republika Srpska] what they do in the Federation. The government in Srpska leads a responsible policy and has the ability to make decisions and solutions that will protect the rights of its population and protect Serbia.”
“The policy of interfering in the internal affairs of a country that should be sovereign is hostile, and their support for solutions that take the side of one people over another leads to destabilization not only in Bosnia and Herzegovina, but also in the entire region,” the anti-globalist leader concluded.
