The opposition coalition NADA requested on April 26 the authorities in Serbia to support Republika Srpska unconditionally in its struggle to restore the powers the Dayton accords had awarded the Bosnian Serb entity, which Belgrade, too, had provided guarantees for.
“Indulging the West and accepting the anti-constitutional Franco-German agreement were big mistakes, sending a clear signal to the West that Serbia was weak and that they can embark on a project to abolish Republika Srpska,” a member of the coalition, Milos Jovanovic, said.
“If Republika Srpska does not have its assets back, Serbia should clearly and decisively support its view that Bosnia and Herzegovina is not a viable state, and that its existence is unnecessary. Also, Serbia should urgently reject the Franco-German agreement,” Jovanovic added.
Another member of the NADA coalition, Vojislav Mihailovic, has said that if Republika Srpska declares independence in a referendum, as the only way to protect itself against the unitarist Bosnia and Herzegovina contrary to the Dayton Peace Agreement, Serbia must be the first in the world to recognize its independence.
