Bosnia Press Review - January 10, 2013

There will be no return of visas. Talks with Budimir. Lives given for Republika Srpska not to be forgotten.




Tanja Fajon, the European Parliament rapporteur said that the information about the European institutions having achieved a political deal on the mechanism of bringing back visas to one of the countries of the Balkans, is not true because there was no such meeting in Brussels on Wednesday.




Leaders of the four parties making Federation entity parliamentary majority finally realized that the international community wants them to talk to the entity president Zivko Budimir. Leader of Croat Democratic Union, HDZBiH, Dragan Covic, did not want to meet Budimir and talk about the way out of the political crisis in the entity while some others did.




President of Republika Srpska, Milorad Dodik, said in Banja Luka that lives given for the creation of the RS in 1992 must not be forgotten. He spoke on the occasion of the 21st anniversary of Republika Srpska also saying that the RS got its international subjectivity and continuity in the Dayton Peace Accords in at the end of the war.
