Separating the concept of separation of Kosovo from Serbia from internal relations in Bosnia and Herzegovina is impossible – the Serb member of the presidency of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Milorad Dodik, said in Belgrade today. The Serbian President, Aleksandar Vucic warned of preasure against Serbia to accept its borders, but if one wants to discuss comperhensive relations in the Balkans, the answer is: ‘look at the bastard, what’s he up to now?!’. Dodik’s and Vucic’s reactions arrive following this morning’s commotion caused by the „mysterious“ non-paper about the annexation of RS to Serbia along with the unification of Kosovo and Albania.

The Serb member of the presidency of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Milorad Dodik and Serbian President, Aleksandar Vucic, visited the Torlak Institute in Belgrade today. They announced that the first Sputnik vaccines will be produced by this institute in June. At the same time, a new supply of vaccines will be soon delivered to RS.

Dodik claims that Bosnia and Herzegovina, as a unitary state of two entities and three constituent peoples, is collapsing.

„They are only interested in a weak Serbia,“ he told media.

He says that the idea of a peaceful breakup of Bosnia and Herzegovina is not new and that is a response to BiH’s impossibility to function. Many admit so, both those who love it and those who don’t, he adds.

„Everyone is united in the fact that it cannot remain as it is and that if that is the case, then talking about a peaceful breakup is a good thing,“ Dodik said.

Dodik revealed that he comes to Belgrade to persuade Vucic of the peaceful breakup of BiH. He also says that he understands the way the Serbian president views regional and other relations, as well as Serbia’s obligations as a signatory and guarantor as per the Dayton Agreement.

In his words, the option of a peaceful breakup of Bosnia and Herzegovina should be put on the table as one of the „relevant and legal“ possibilities in the future.

Dodik said that he notices the intensity with which Vucic and other people from Serbia and Republika Srpska are being described as if they did something terrible just because they advocate for peace.

„I believe that a peaceful breakup is not a war breakup, and it is obvious that those who are in favor of war, such as Komsic and Dzaferovic, are favored, those who have accepted that Kosovo has been separated illegally through NATO’s military intervention – by bombing Serbia, while mentioning the peaceful breakup of Bosnia and Herzegovina – that is a terrible thing for them that should be avoided in any way. And they want to prevent any talks on that topic,“ said Dodik.

Dodik claims that the concept of unitarization of Bosnia is being pushed at the expense of the majorization of Serbs and Croats.

„Unitary Bosnia and Herzegovina, which majorizes Serbs and Croats. They succeeded in doing this with the Croats to a significant extent, but they will not manage to do this with us. We will sooner leave Bosnia and Herzegovina than they will be able to impose such a concept on us. It is impossible for them to separate the concept of Kosovo from internal relations in Bosnia and Herzegovina,“ the Serb member of the presidency of Bosnia and Herzegovina emphasized.

„It is impossible. It is impossible for, with almost identical situations, one concept to apply to Kosovo and to say to Republika Srpska: you should be silent and remain as we think you should. That will not happen.“

That is why there must be a dialogue, and Serbia is an unavoidable country when it comes to establishing regional peace, Dodik concluded.

„That is why Serbia, as a signatory and guarantor of the Dayton Agreement, must say something about that, and others want to silence Serbia and say: ‘Our commitment to separate Kosovo by force is fine and you have no right to do anything else in Serbia either, but support our ambitions to make Bosnia for one people only.’ That will not happen and I will persistently come here to convince Vucic, and I think that in Serbia, he is the man who best understands the situation in BiH.”

Early this morning, the Slovenian based portal „Necenzurisano“ published the alleged nonpaper: „Western Balkans – the road ahead,” reportedly sent in February to Brussels, allegedly by the office of Slovenian Prime Minister Janez Jansa. The paper reportedly reveals ideas for partition of Bosnia and Herzegovina, the annexation of the Republika Srpska to Serbia and the unification of Kosovo with Albania.

„In Kosovo, 95% of the population wants to unite with the original Albanian nation. The situation is similar in Albania. The border between Albania (a NATO member) and Kosovo is practically non-existent,“ the document reads.

It adds that the Serbian part of Kosovo would get a special status, following the example of South Tyrol.

„The Serb national issue can be largely solved by annexing part of the Republika Srpska to Serbia. In this case, Serbia is willing to agree to the unification of Kosovo and Albania,“ the document further reads.

In the meantime, Janez Jansa denied that he sent this document.

Aleksandar Vucic has no information about this non-paper either. He told reporters this morning that he does not know whether this is true. Vucic noted that he observed „pronounced chauvinism“ among a part of the Serbian „pseudo-quasi“ elite because „they think that every time anyone thinks that Serbs should get something, even if it is not true and it does not exist, that they should be beheaded.“

„Every day they change our borders, tear Serbia apart and explain how we should accept it because it is wonderful, and when someone thinks to say – ‘let’s try to talk about comprehensive relations in the Balkans’, they say – look at the bastard, what’s he up to now,“ Vucic said.

Speaking of the document that caused such a commotion in the EU that the member of the European Parliament, Slovenian Tanja Fajon, held a media conference in Ljubljana calling on Mr.Jansa to make a public apperance.

The Slovenian news portal alleged thet the the document was certainly not penned in the Slovenian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, but that it might have been written in Budapest.
