President Vučić meets the Serbian member of the Presidency of Bosnia and Herzegovina
President of the Republic of Serbia Aleksandar Vučić said today after meeting the Serbian member of the Presidency of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Milorad Dodik, that the indispensable need of the Serbian people is to preserve peace and political stability.
"We had good talks, there were several topics on the table, the key conclusion being that the vital need of the Serbian people - wherever they live in the Balkans - is the peace and political stability. Our job is to do everything in our power to preserve peace and political stability,” said President Vučić.
The Dayton Peace Agreement is of historic importance because it was the only possible solution in which everyone lost and gained a little and only such an agreement could preserve the peace in the territory of Bosnia and Herzegovina, said President Vučić, noting that no one can change the will of the three nations.
President Vučić reminded that ratification of the loan arrangement with Turkey regarding the construction of the Belgrade-Sarajevo highway is soon to follow.
"We are about to commence with physical works on the Kuzmin - Rača section, and as Serbia builds the bridge to the Republic of Srpska and Bosnia and Herzegovina, we are ready to examine how we can help our partners from the Republic of Srpska and Bosnia and Herzegovina to build a highway to Bijeljina," said President Vučić.
President Vučić also announced his visit to the municipality of Drvar in the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina on January 29, as well as Mrkonjić Grad in the Republic of Srpska on the occasion of the opening of the textile industry facility "Jumko" in Drvar, adding that Komercijalna Banka will open its branch in that municipality as well.
"We have fulfilled our promises and these people will have a slightly easier life. It is our common obligation to help our people and on that day I will visit the Republic of Srpska and Mrkonjić Grad to see what else we can do to help our people," said President Vučić.
He said he was grateful for the opening of the factory in Drvar, because in the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina, he says, lives a very poor part of the Serbian people.
