Republika Srpska President Milorad Dodik said in an interview with DW that a referendum on the independence of the (Serb) entity is currently not an institutional topic.He claims, however, that BiH (Bosnia-Herzegovina) will not survive in any form, B92 informs. The RS president directly links Kosovo’s independence with the independence of the Republika Srpska (the Serb Republic): “I am not against Kosovo’s independence. I in favor of a conversation between Belgrade and that (Kosovo – DW), and if Belgrade so decides I have nothing against it, but them my next question is why the Republika Srpska cannot do it. If there are rights for one side, then there must be rights for others as well”. Dodik says that the Republika Srpska is burdened by the fact that Serbia has remained in the policy of preserving (its) territorial integrity. “If at that moment Serbia, when Kosovo separated, said it was ok, we would surely have already separated by now”, he says.At the end of the conversation, he drew a map of the Balkans the way he sees it – the RS and Serbia united, and Kosovo partitioned, with the north belonging to Serbia.
