Bosnian parties: Vucic revives Milosevic's Great Serbian hegemony

Bosnian parties warned that the All-Serbian Council in Belgrade is a revival of Serbian hegemony - a source of war and aggression, Viesti reported.

"Narod i Pravda" and the "Party for Democratic Action," said that "such a gathering actually represents the awakening of the project of the former Serbian dictator Slobodan Milosevic and the continuation of Serbia's hegemonic policy towards its neighbours."

"Such a policy threatens peace, and stability and makes impossible any regional cooperation between independent and sovereign states, based on respect for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of each state," said Narod i Pravda, the party headed by Bosnian Foreign Minister Elmedin Konaković.

The All-Serbian Assembly was attended by representatives of Serbia, Republika Srpska, Kosovo and North Macedonia, who were urged to preserve the vital national goals and freedom (of Serbia). The indivisibility of Kosovo from Serbia was emphasized. Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic has pledged to stick to the Dayton Peace Accords that ended the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina in the 1990s.

Bosnian parties, however, defined the Council as a threat to peace in the Balkans. Bosnia's largest opposition party, Bakir Izetbegovic's Party for Democratic Action, called for a response from the international community, calling the meeting in Belgrade an "open threat". | BGNES
