Milorad Dodik says Republika Srpska will demand a UN seat if Kosovo gets one – adding that Kosovo’s partition should also be up for discussion.

If Kosovo becomes a member of the United Nations and other international institutions, Bosnia’s mainly Serbian entity, Republika Srpska, RS, will demand the same, Milorad Dodika, the RS President, told Friday’s Vecernje Novosti, a Serbian daily.

Dodik told the newspaper that back in 2008, after Kosovo unilaterally declared independence from Serbia, the RS Assembly adopted a resolution stating that, “the RS will seek statehood status in case new international principles and practices of recognition of the right of self-determination are implemented in the international community”.

He added that this resolution “is still valid and we will not give up on it”.
