Deputy Speaker of the Republika Srpska National Assembly, Nenad Stevandic, expects a joint declaration of Serbia and Srpska on the survival of the Serb people to be fully supported from all society segments. Stevandic believes that, before forwarding it to the parliamentary procedure, the expert public should give an opinion on the joint Serbia-Srpska’s declaration on the survival of the Serb people, thus contributing to the adoption of this important document.
“The document should be available to the general public before it is sent to the parliamentary procedure. This is a significant act and it is therefore necessary that everyone fully contributes to its adoption,” Stevandic told SRNA.
He has stressed that due to its importance, this document should be adopted in a special assembly session.
“Such an important document is not issued every year and therefore everybody should be informed on its content – professional public, the Academy of Science and Art, the War Veterans Organisation, the non-governmental sector,” says Stevandic.
The Declaration should include the right to use the Serbian language and the Cyrillic alphabet, the right to study and nurture Serbian culture, the right to study Serbian history and foster the Serb freedom-loving tradition, the preservation of national geography, the right to preserve and protect the Serbian cultural and historical heritage, and the right to inform in Serbian language.
Republika Srpska President Milorad Dodik earlier said that the text of the joint declaration was agreed and that both parliaments would adopt it until the Candlemass Day, the Statehood Day of Serbia.
