Bosnian Serbs accept Bosnia and Herzegovina the way it was created by the 1995 Dayton Peace Agreement and reject the unconstitutional changes made mostly by foreigners, Bosnian Serb leader Milorad Dodik told N1 in an interview published on Sunday.
Dodik said that, thanks to foreign interventions, Bosnia now has an army although its Constitution does not foresee its existence. It also has indirect taxes and a state prosecution office and court, although none of this exists in the Constitution, he explained.
This is why the Serb.majority semi-autonomous entity in the country, Republika Srpska (RS), has been contemplating secession, he said.
“Secession is an option we do not exclude but we do prefer the Constitution and everything it contains,” Dodik said.
The Bosnian Serb leader said he is convinced that time will show that Bosnia and Herzegovina can not exist.
“That’s neither my caprice nor my hatred, that’s my analysis,” he said.
Dodik said he was wondering why the United States were supporting Bosnia and Herzegovina when neither the Bosniaks are happy with it because they did not get everything they wanted, nor are the Serbs satisfied, and the Croats are "politically devastated."
He said, however, that nobody is planning to secede although the Bosnian Serbs are not excluding that option.
“Not because we want to but because Bosnia is impossible,” Dodik said.
“I am advocating action that will create something sustainable, something that will end the conflict. Despite enormous interventions of the international community, Bosnia and Herzegovina was never turned into a functional country,” he said.
“Now what? Should I waste my entire life listening to liberals from all over the world telling me that I have to stay here?” Dodik asked.
