Bosnia-Herzegovina (BiH) Presidency Chairman Milorad Dodik has told Kosovo President Hashim Thaci to stop mentioning the Republika Srpska(RS).
Reacting to Thaci saying that he “does not want Republika Srpska” in Kosovo and Metohija, Dodik told Thaci during the plenary meeting of the Brdo-Brijuni Summit in Tirana to stop mentioning Republika Srpska, because Republika Srpska is a constitutional category, confirmed in Dayton (peace accords), one that has its Constitution and its territory.
“Don’t mention the RS. If that will make you feel better, let me tell you – the RS has no territorial pretensions towards Kosovo. After all, Kosovo is Serbia,” Dodik told Thaci.
Also on Thursday, Thaci canceled his participation in a joint lunch organized after the end of the summit. Klan Kosova is reporting that the reason was the presence of Dodik, who is the Serb representative in the BiH Presidency and a former president of the RS.
Also according to Kosovo-based media, while shaking hands with President Aleksandar Vucic, Thaci ignored Dodik, who was with Vucic.
