President of Republika Srpska Milorad Dodik said that he is not interested in the Armed Forces of BiH because “they are the forces of the NATO alliance” and that he will advocate for the RS to lead the policy of complete neutrality when it comes to military alliances.
“I respect the people from the Third Infantry Regiment of the Armed Forces of BiH, and when it comes to the splodge created by the NATO regarding the presence of the Armed Forces of BiH in Banja Luka it only tells us that we should reject any path towards that military alliance because it is clear to us in which way they would manage when BiH would be under their control,” said Dodik, adding:
“Such arrogance and interference in the internal affairs by one military organization that is supposed to be apolitical has not been seen ever before. I will advocate for the RS to lead the policy of complete neutrality when it comes to military alliances. If they wanted to do something bad to us after the bombing, when they threw depleted uranium on us, now they interfere with the internal affairs in BiH.”
On the occasion of January 9, the Day of RS, which was declared unconstitutional by the Constitutional Court of BiH, Dodik said that the people in that BiH entity decided to mark this date permanently.
