SARAJEVO – Bosnia’s embassy in Israel won’t be moved to Jerusalem

A Serb member of the Presidency of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Milorad Dodik, said on Monday he would submit a request to the Presidency that Bosnia’s embassy in Israel be moved from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. He was quickly contradicted by his Croat counterpart.

“I will submit a request to the Presidency of Bosnia and Herzegovina for a motion to move the Bosnian embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, because it is clearly of important interest to the US,” Dodik told a special session of the National Assembly of Republika Srpska.

His Croatian counterpart in the Presidency, Željko Komšić, said Dodik’s idea of moving Bosnia’s diplomatic representatives from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem and his support of, as he put it, “American interests”, was hypocritical if not downright ridiculous.

“These words are coming from a man on the US blacklist. Dodik wants to fight against NATO. He’s opposed to the joint anti-terrorism fight of Bosnia and the US, and he’s refusing to have US observers in the elections. There’s hardly a man in Bosnia and Herzegovina who’s more fiercely opposed to US interests,” Komšić said. (BETA)
