Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic stated on Aug. 4 that Belgrade supported the territorial integrity of Bosnia and Herzegovina, but also that of Republika Srpska (RS) within Bosnia and Herzegovina, as well as all the rights and obligations RS had from the Dayton agreement.
Commenting on the decision of Valentin Inzko, until recently the high representative in Bosnia, to impose a ban on the denial of "genocide" in Srebrenica, Vucic said after the meeting with RS leaders in Belgrade that Serbia accepted only those decisions which the Serbs, Croats and Bosniacs in Bosnia and Herzegovina all agree on.
"That is the essence and spirit of the Dayton agreement. Imposing solutions is not," Vucic said, adding that Serbia displayed the wish for the Dayton accords to be honored, in order for peace and stability in the region to be preserved.
"We honor the territorial integrity of Bosnia and Herzegovina, but also that of RS in Bosnia, and we will continue to act responsibly in keeping with the Dayton accords," Vucic stated.
