Member of Presidency of Bosnia and Herzegovina Zeljko Komsic said on Saturday that the message of the Ambassador of the Russian Federation to Bosnia and Herzegovina, which shows disrespect for the decisions of the institutions of the state of Bosnia and Herzegovina and which were made by full consensus in a continuous of at least ten years, is a bad and undiplomatic message, Klix.ba news portal reports.
He stated that such an aggressive approach of the Russian Federation, and an attack on what the state of Bosnia and Herzegovina has defined through its laws and decisions, gives the US Senate the right to claim that Russia threatens the sovereignty of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
“In this regard, I think we must be especially careful when it comes to Russia’s destructive role in this area, because the messages sent by the Russian ambassador are not harmless at all. What is perhaps good is that many in BiH today see that, and they used to condemn anyone who would try to draw attention to that,” Komsic believes.
He added that Ambassador Ivancov may think he can pursue an aggressive anti-Western, anti-democratic policy in BiH, as his country is doing in Serbia, as they are doing in Montenegro now trying to destabilize it, and as they tried in Northern Macedonia, but reminds him that he is only a diplomat of a foreign state on the territory of independent and sovereign Bosnia and Herzegovina.
“He should neither be concerned about the NATO integration of Bosnia and Herzegovina nor does he have anything to comment on the decisions made by our highest legislative bodies,” Komsic said.
