Dodik supported the Bosniak Leaders’ Joint Statement condemning Terrorism

Dodik Support cazin.netPresident of Republika Srpska Milorad Dodik believes that the key of success in fight against terrorism and extremism lies on those from whose ethnic and religious groups such occurences come.

Dodik supported the Joint Statement by Bosniak political, religious and social representatives strongly condemning every kind of terrorism and announcing resolute opposition to radicalism, violent extremism and terrorism.

“It is very clear that the Bosniaks, Muslims, in B&H are people who have nothing to do with those extreme processes, especially with extremism, but it was necessary that the political and religious leadership of Bosniaks expresses its attitude towards that in one such way. I support that,” Dodik said.

Dodik stated that he did not get to see the statement in detail, but that he agrees with the part which speaks of the need for everyone else to oppose Islamophobia, discrimination of Muslims, and their identification with terrorists.

“I agree with the necessity to absolutely eliminate any kind of Islamophobia and precisely we from some other confessions and ethnic communities have sufficient understanding for the situation in general. Precisely one such statement gives greatest support to the fight against extremism and terrorism. I believe this is indeed a good path and I can only support it,” Dodik said.

Commenting on the statement of the Bosniak member of the Presidency of B&H that the country will have to respond on violence with repression, Dodik said that prevention is also needed, apart from repression.

“I agree with Izetbegović that repression must be applied on these issued without hesitation. No one can be protected, not even in the conditions of awareness that those who might be identified as such can be a sort of collateral. I believe that, in any event, a rigorous action of the system of authorities and institutions, not only at preventive but also at repressive level, can be of significant help in that,” said Dodik.
