A Serb member of Bosnia and Herzegovina's three-member Presidency, Milorad Dodik, has said on Aug. 4 that the country had better "separate" into three independent states, suggesting that the separation would secure more peace in the region.
"Bosnia and Herzegovina has made it clear it cannot function. We can't live together, and we had better separate and find a way to exist as separate subjects. The only solution for Bosnia is to separate into three independent states," Dodik said in an interview with the Prva TV.
Dodik also said that "a higher level of peace" would exist if there were three independent states in the territory of Bosnia and Herzegovina, underlining that there would be no armed conflicts within the territory "unless NATO stages an intervention."
In a comment on High Representative for Bosnia and Herzegovina Christian Schmidt's words that there would be no change of borders in the Balkans, which Dodik asked, "What does he have to do with it," adding that it would happen.
