Bosnian Mediator Warns Dodik Against Extremist Statements

The top international mediator in Bosnia-Herzegovina has warned the prime minister of the country's Serb Republic, Milorad Dodik, against statements that question the country's sovereignty and territorial integrity.

High Representative Miroslav Lajcak said the international community stands united in its determination not to tolerate any attempts to undermine the 1995 Dayton Peace Agreement that halted the Bosnian conflict. He said that under the agreement, Bosnia is made up of two entities - the Serb Republic and Muslim-Croat Federation.

The mediator noted that in advance of last year's elections, Mr. Dodik signed a pledge to honor the provisions of the accord.

The Bosnian Serb prime minister recently has questioned Bosnia's constitutional structure and raised the issue of the Serb Republic's possible secession from the country.
