Milorad Dodik to Protect Pelješac Bridge Again

Total Croatia News

ZAGREB, July 21, 2019 – The Serb member of Bosnia and Herzegovina’s Presidency, Milorad Dodik, has said he will again impose a veto and ask the Serb entity’s parliament to reverse any decision whereby the Presidency’s two other members might outvote him concerning the Pelješac Bridge in Croatia.

“If I’m outvoted again and Šefik Džaferović and Željko Komšić create certain conclusions on the Pelješac Bridge again, I’ll invoke vital interests again,” he was quoted as saying in BiH’s print media on Sunday.

Earlier this week, the Serb entity’s parliament rescinded by two-thirds majority a decision by Džaferović and Komšić, the Presidency’s Bosniak and Croat members, after Dodik vetoed their demand that construction on the Pelješac Bridge be stopped and that the two countries resolve the sea border issue, or they would file an international suit.

Dodik said all outstanding issues with Croatia should be resolved through talks but without setting conditions or creating “new disputes that will last ten years or more.”

Komšić assumed the rotating chairmanship of the BiH Presidency from Dodik on Saturday, saying he would look for any way to implement the sea border demarcation and that he would insist on BiH’s access to the high seas.
