Member of the Presidency of Bosnia-Herzegovina Milorad Dodik claims one of the key facts is that the Reform Program does not prejudge the NATO membership and that is why the document is not called the Annual National Program.
“NATO is a serious organization and they have clear procedures and there are no insinuations. It was said directly, if you want to go further into integration, you need to submit an ANP. We are not submitting it,” Dodik told reporters in Banja Luka.
He added that he was not able to write the document himself, but that the international community was there, as well as representatives of Croats and Bosniaks, who want NATO integration.
He is convinced that the appointment of the Council of Ministers of BiH would be completed on Monday, Federal News Agency reports.
Serbian Democratic Party Chairman Mirko Sarovic said the party’s position on BiH’s Reform Program would be presented tomorrow at a special session of the Republika Srpska National Assembly.
Sarovic said that his, but also the majority’s view in the SDS party, is that the BiH’s Reform Program means activating the Membership Action Plan (MAP), which is a route to the NATO Alliance.
“I am quite sure, since we had insight into this document, that BiH is going by NATO path and that any camouflage of this document cannot avoid the basic one, which is that this practically means the activation of MAP, and the activation of MAP, and paving the way for NATO,” Sarovic told reporters in Bileca.
He is currently staying at the SDS Municipal Committee in Bileca, and he said that the visit was planned earlier with the aim of looking at the situation in the organization, which is an overriding task, Vijesti.ba news portal reports.
