Serbian President Aleksandar Vučić said on Tuesday (2 November) that he had not yet read the report High Representative for Bosnia and Herzegovina Christian Schmidt prepared for the UN Security Council, but that it appeared to him that that the main accusations are against the Republika Srpska, even though Republika Srpska was honouring the Dayton Accords.

“I don’t have the opinion on every issue as the majority of Serbs. I saw from the portal that the main accusations are against Republika Srpska and how they want to break the Dayton Agreement. But I think the problem is that everyone else was trying to do that. I repeat I want to read it carefully first”, Vučić told Serbian media in Glasgow, where he participated in the COP26 summit.

“When they were ripping the former Yugoslavia apart, they said that everyone, including provinces, could secede, but if the Serbs wanted to leave, then this is impossible,” Vučić said.

“When you talk about BiH, we do everything to help, when they need that help,” Vučić said, adding that Serbia sent a lot of assistance to BiH.

Vučić said that an exception was made in respecting international law.

“That is why it is funny to me that today they are talking about law and justice, that is nonsense. Only Serbia has no right to self-determination and no right to anything, they have already bombed us,” he said.
