statedepartment-copyThe U.S. State Department condemned the organizing of illegal referendum in Republika Srpska on January 9, held this Sunday.

In his press statement, Deputy Department Spokesperson Mark Tonner reminded how the authorities in the RS organized a referendum in direct contravention of the decision reached by the Constitutional Court of BiH.

“The United States condemns this illegal referendum and will support local institutions as they seek to hold the RS leadership accountable for undermining the rule of law and obstructing implementation of the Dayton Peace Accords. We call on all parties in Bosnia and Herzegovina to refrain from further divisive actions and rhetoric and focus on urgently needed social, political, and economic reforms,” the statement said.
