Serbian President Aleksandar Vučić offered, through the American lobbyist and former ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell, to help remove the Serb member of the Bosnia and Herzegovina Presidency Milorad Dodik, the daily Vijesti reported on Tuesday.

According to the daily, Grenell had a meeting with a group of Republican congressmen in the Trump Hotel in Washington on 1 December, attended by the Serbian Ambassador to the US and Vucic’s longtime associate, Marko Djurić.

At the meeting, Grenell, who served as a special envoy for Kosovo and the Belgrade-Pristina dialogue for President Trump, presented Dodik as a major disruptive element in the Balkans, while speaking of Vučić as a partner and source of stability, according to the daily.

At the same meeting, the daily reported that Grenell said that Vučić would be willing to help with the withdrawal or removal of Dodik, offering as an alternative the incumbent Republika Srpska president, Željka Cvijanović.
