Košarac: Konaković expressed his personal position in a protest note to Montenegro, which cannot be considered the official position of BiH

"Konaković sent a 'protest note', because he did not like the way in which the President of the Parliament of Montenegro, Andrija Mandić, spoke in a credible and nationally responsible manner about the national policy of the Serbian people, without a single insulting word for other peoples," said Košarac.

I warned the official institutions of Montenegro that the Minister of Foreign Affairs in the Council of Ministers, Elmedin Konaković, expressed an exclusively personal position in the protest note, which cannot be considered the official position of Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH), wrote the deputy chairman of the Council of Ministers of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Staša Košarac, on his Instagram account.

The Minister of Foreign Affairs of Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) Elmedin Konaković said yesterday that he sent a note of protest to Montenegro due to the statement by the Speaker of the Assembly Andrija Mandić that the All-Serbian Parliament is a gathering of two states.

Košarac emphasized that "in his capacity as the deputy chairman of the Council of Ministers, he informed the Montenegrin Minister of Foreign Affairs that Konaković's note does not represent the official and agreed position of the Presidency of BiH, as the only constitutionally competent body for conducting foreign policy, nor the Council of Ministers responsible for the implementation of policies and decisions of BiH". .

"I warned that writing and sending one's own political views on behalf of Bosnia and Herzegovina represents usurpation and abuse of the authority of the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Konaković sent a 'protest note' because he did not like the way in which the President of the Parliament of Montenegro Andrija Mandić is credible and nationally responsible spoke about the national policy of the Serbian people, without a single insulting word for other peoples," said Košarac.

He assessed that it is "a problem of Konaković's distorted political perception in which only Bosniak political views can be considered official and relevant in Bosnia and Herzegovina".

"The reality is different. In whose name and on what basis is Konaković sending protest notes, if the competent authorities in Bosnia and Herzegovina have not given their consent? It is clear that he is doing this unilaterally and in violation of the Constitution of Bosnia and Herzegovina. His views are exclusively personal and are not binding on the institutions Bosnia and Herzegovina, nor do they have the support of Serbian representatives at the joint level," said Košarac.
