President of Republika Srpska entity Milorad Dodik refused to shake hands with the American Ambassador to Bosnia, Maureen Cormack, at a ceremony marking the liberation of a WWII death camp in north-western Bosnia.
The ceremony at Donja Gradina memorial, the execution grounds of Jasenovac concentration camp in Croatia, was attended by numerous local and international officials. RS leader Dodik shook hands with the guests, but skipped Ambassador Cormack.
The entity president and leader of SNSD was blacklisted last year by the US State Department for his actions that violated the provisions of 1995 Dayton peace agreement. Dodik identified Ambassador Cormack as the person responsible for the American financial sanctions against him.
