Republika Srpska will not allow the integration of Bosnia and Herzegovina into NATO. This was stated by the head of the republic Milorad Dodik, writes RIA News.
“The Republika Srpska supports the European path of Bosnia and Herzegovina, but will not make any agreements for the path to the North Atlantic Alliance. We are cooperating with NATO, no one disputes this, but no decisions will be made on the integration of Bosnia and Herzegovina into the alliance,” he said.
Bosnia and Herzegovina, after the war, which lasted from 1992 to 1995, is governed by a “council of three” – a presidium, which includes representatives of Serbs, Croats and Bosniaks elected every four years.
The presidium also includes the leader of the Bosnian Serbs, Milorad Dodik, who is considered pro-Russian. In October 2022, he was re-elected. Bosnia and Herzegovina is a member of the NATO Partnership for Peace program, and the ALTHEA peacekeeping mission has also been operating in the country since 2004.
