The Bosnian Serb parliament yesterday voted in favor of the secession of the country’s Serbs from state institutions.
Bosnia is divided into the Republika Srpska and a Croat-Muslim entity, a decision ratified in 1995 by the Dayton Accords that ended the Bosnian war.
Milorad Dodik, a Bosnian Serb political leader and member of the country’s collective government, said: “Bosnia is heading in a direction we did not agree to by signing the Dayton Peace Accords. “The time has come for the Republika Srpska to gain its freedom.”
At the same time, a State Department official, speaking to the Guardian, likened the move to a fall from a cliff for Bosnia and warned that the US would even consider sanctions.
