The President of Republika Srpska (RS) Milorad Dodik said in an interview that the President of Serbia, Aleksandar Vucic, succeeded in bringing the issue of Kosovo from a losing position back to the agenda and the focus of interest.
”Vucic is trying to bring everyone together and lead a public dialogue. The key problem of the loss of Kosovo and its current status is the moment when the previous authorities of Serbia agreed to transfer the arrangement from the auspices of the United Nations (UN) to the framework of the European Union (EU). Even then, a decision was made to declare the opinion of the international tribunal, related to the status of Kosovo and the declaration of independence, invalid,” he said.
He also adds that the threats from the West have increased and the position of Germany has strengthened.
”Germany, which is anti-Serbian in that part of the Balkans. It was always anti-Serb, not rational, realistic, and always against the Serbs. The same is true in this case regarding Kosovo,”Dodik added.
Moreover, he also pointed out that if the Franco-German plan is rejected, then it must be rejected by the government and the opposition, as well as society as a whole.
Also, if we accept it, then we should all do it.
When talking about the Community of Serb Municipalities (ZSO), Dodik notes that it is good that they are talking about the RS, however, Albanians often say that they do not want RS on the territory of Kosmet.
”It is very good that they say so, that it will one day be RS. I mean this in the essential sense. It will be called ZSO, and it will have executive functions of government as RS has, and special relations with Serbia as RS has. This is a problem for them and the whole story lies in that,” Dodik concluded, Vijesti.ba reports.
