Bosnian Serbs leader Milorad Dodik visited Zagreb on Wednesday (16 September) and met with Croatian President Zoran Milanović and Prime Minister Andrej Plenković, in the capacity of the Serb people representative, rather than a member of state’s collective presidency. His visit, however, was highly criticised by the other two representatives of Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH), Željko Komšić and Šefik Džaferović, who resent Dodik for frequently publicly questioning the existence of BiH.
“By accepting this private visit, Zagreb has ignored the institutions of our country. That is their choice, but they will suffer the consequences.“ said Džaferović. A similar comment was made by Komšić.
Croatian Prime Minister Andrej Plenković has tried to doubledown on the critique, however, by explaining that the main purpose of Dodik’s visit was to talk about infrastructural projects.
