Christian Schmidt

The Serbian member of the Presidency of BiH, Milorad Dodik, said that Christian Schmidt, who took over the function of the High Representative in BiH today, is not welcome for the Republika Srpska, that Srpska will not talk to him, will not respect any of his decisions.

At the conference at which the journalists did not have any questions after his speech, Dodik said that he would not attend the announced meeting of Schmidt with the members of the Presidency of BiH tomorrow in Sarajevo, because, he says, he has nothing to talk to him.

He again asked the international community to explain on the basis of which and under which international law Schmidt was elected High Representative.

– Serbs are a tougher nut to crack, Mr. Schmidt, you are not welcome for Republika Srpska and we will not respect anything you do – said Dodik at an extraordinary press conference on the occasion of Schmidt’s assumption of the position of High Representative.

Assessing that the situation in BiH is seriously complicated at this moment, Dodik said that BiH is on an “irreversible path”, and that the Republika Srpska has the right to choose its path.

– Our answer is strong, we cannot believe in Schmidt’s good intentions “- said Dodik and pointed out that the Republika Srpska can accept everything that is in accordance with the data structure, and that everything else has no legitimacy.

He considers it incredible, he points out, to reach for the destabilization of the Republika Srpska at a time when everything is progressing in every sense, and the situation is incomparably better than in the Federation of BiH, which has not had a government for three years, has many open issues and many scandals.

Dodik thanked all political parties in Republika Srpska for understanding the current moment.

The alternative is, he repeated the split.

The Serb member of the Presidency of BiH expressed his readiness to join other political parties in the Republika Srpska in, as he said, the creation of a united people’s resistance front, and, as he said, only in that way can the Republika Srpska defend itself.

He called on the people of Srpska to gather around the people’s front.

– It is clear that we must not allow an unelected foreigner to talk about anything related to Serbs and the Republika Srpska… – stated Dodik pointed out that the imposition of Schmidt as High Representative endangered the European path of BiH.

He asked what Satler, who is the EU representative in BiH, was doing in BiH when the new High Representative arrived.

He reiterated that the PIC is a self-proclaimed group of representatives, admittedly, as he said, of powerful countries, but that such a thing does not exist under the Dayton Agreement and that “they are the most common fraudsters who take for granted a right that does not exist and try to lead” .

Dodik also said that Srpska would be in a position to withdraw from all agreements, such as, for example, the agreement on the army.

It is our job, he said, to reject all imposed decisions of the High Representative.

He also said that no one should be afraid.

They think, said Dodik, that their strength is in the mace, so, as he stated, “we will lie down while you try to crush us so that we do not exist both as an entity and as an identity.”
