Dodik stressed that the continued stay of the Republika Srpska in BiH in its current form threatens the Serbs with freedom and “peaceful destruction.” To avoid split of the country he called the release of foreigners from the constitutional court and the resumption of its work “as in all other countries.”
We will do this and will not stop us, neither the US nor anyone else, because we believe that the Dayton agreement was destroyed primarily due to the factor of foreign intervention.
