US Should Have Imposed Sanctions against Dodik Much Earlier

Former High Representative in Bosnia and Herzegovina Christian Schwarz-Schilling said that the United States should have imposed sanctions against the President of RS Milorad Dodik much earlier and it is surprising that the US has finally decided to make the move, since he asked for it back during his mandate as High Representative.
“I asked for sanctions against Dodik back in 2006, but the United States did not comply with my request in order not to compromise the talks with Kosovo at the time,” Schwarz-Schilling told FENA.
He added that such a decision shows that the United States takes the situation in Bosnia and Herzegovina very seriously and added that the same measures should be sought not just from Serbia, but rather from Member States of the European Union.
