Germany slams Serb leader's plans for Bosnia's dissolution

BERLIN

Germany on Friday sharply criticized Bosnian Serb politician Milorad Dodik over his recent moves seeking to dissolve Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The German Foreign Ministry's deputy spokeswoman, Andrea Sasse, said recent statements by Dodik were "totally irresponsible and unacceptable," adding that they endangered the stability of the entire region.

Dodik, who is the Serb member of Bosnia's tripartite presidency, drew widespread criticism for threatening the secession of Republika Srpska from the rest of the country.

Sasse said recent developments would be discussed by EU foreign ministers during their meeting on Monday in Brussels.

"The federal government of Germany is committed to the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Bosnia and Herzegovina," she said.

Dodik had claimed last month that several EU member states supported the secession of Republika Srpska from Bosnia and Herzegovina.
