Dodik: Republika Srpska, one day, will be an independent state and in a federation with Serbia
Serbian member of the BiH Presidency, Milorad Dodik is convinced that Republika Srpska will one day be an independent state and will have federal or confederate status with Serbia. Commenting on the escalation of US sanctions, he said that Americans support Muslims and want to "break" Serbia.
In an interview with "Evening News ", Dodik said that the confederation or federation of Serbia and Serbia will be a contribution to stabilization and peace in this area.
"Why should we Serbs not have the right to do that?" Everyone dared to separate from the Serbs and break up Yugoslavia, and the Serbs have no right to separate from the Muslims in BiH and have to endure oppression and destruction of their identity and Serbism. "This is like a violent marriage," Dodik said.
Stating that he is constantly calling for some kind of reconciliation, Dodik asks how it is possible to reconcile nations that have never been on the same side of history.
A few days ago, the United States tightened sanctions against the Serbian member of the BiH Presidency, and Dodik says that this was done for two reasons - to prevent him from running in new elections and to win, but also to discourage anyone else who would try. to do what he does.
"Nothing has happened, and they are already imposing sanctions. It is a fear, not a rational political approach. "Their fear will cause me a lot of problems, but what can we do?" He said.
Asked how he would fight the sanctions, Dodik said he was simply not ready to allow Republika Srpska to be subject to sanctions and that he was personally prepared for any sacrifice for Srpska, whatever that meant.
According to him, BiH could survive within Yugoslavia, as a republic or as an entity.
"After the Muslims overthrew Yugoslavia, they also ruined the possibility of BiH living. On what principle do they believe they should leave Yugoslavia, and we have no right to leave BiH? "It is a matter of principle," Dodik concluded.
