The Serb-dominated Republika Srpska (RS) entity President Milorad Dodik met with the outgoing British Ambassador to Bosnia and Herzegovina Edward Ferguson and said that RS remains committed to Bosnia's EU integration, as well as the peace and stability in the country, and respect for the Dayton Peace Agreement, which ended the war in Bosnia.

Dodik added that RS will cooperate constructively on all issues relevant to the country’s EU accession.
He said the RS Government was grateful for the British Government’s support to the improvement of the recently adopted RS’ Energy Strategy.

The Bosnian Framework Energy Strategy by 2035 is supposed to set the framework of the development of Bosnia’s energy sector, with respect to the energy strategies of both its entities, the RS and the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Dodik also held a separate meeting with the Croatian Ambassador to Bosnia, Ivan Del Vechio, to whom he said that all three constituent peoples in Bosnia (Bosniaks, Croats and Serbs) should make sovereign decisions without any suggestions from the sidelines, and that RS wants to be in the position provided to this entity by the Dayton Peace Agreement.
