Serb member of the BiH Presidency Milorad Dodik said today that the world is not what the USA and Europe define.

 “They think they can arrange the world, which /time/ has passed”, Dodik told reporters in Stričići on Mount Manjača when asked to comment on the recent statements from the US Ambassador to BiH, Michael Murphy.

Dodik emphasized that the West should be respected. “However, it is very corrupt for such people to say some things. They invent some sanctions and that I should not run for office, but let the USA take care of its elections”, said Dodik.

He says that he is running in the elections because he offers the people the idea of freedom and the state, which, as he said, is constantly contested by Western countries.

“They are trying to prevent it by sanctioning, contesting, subterfuge, and sometimes by bombing with depleted uranium. Of course, they won’t be able to do that”, said Dodik.

In a recent interview with “Free Europe”, Murphy said, among other things, that the United States is ready to “use the means at their disposal, including sanctions, to defend the territorial integrity, sovereignty and multi-ethnic character of Bosnia and Herzegovina”.
