Milorad Dodik, Serb member of the BiH Presidency, told Srna that Croatia’s response to the announcement of the arrival of Serbian President Aleksandar Vučić in Jasenovac, where he intended to lay a wreath at the monument to Serbs killed in the NDH, was incomprehensible and unacceptable.

“Aleksandar Vučić is the first president of Serbia who expressed his desire to lay a wreath in Jasenovac during his mandate, and he was stopped in that intention”, emphasized Dodik.

Dodik pointed out that regional cooperation and good-neighborly relations were not built with prohibitions but with a helping hand, and, therefore, the decision of the Croatian authorities was surprising and incomprehensible.

“Serbs and Croats have had a difficult past, and both deserve better future. The way the Croatian authorities have acted is not a guarantee of such a future”, said Dodik.

Serbian President Aleksandar Vučić planned to visit Jasenovac and Pakrac privately today, but the Croatian authorities did not allow him to enter the country
