BEVANDA: AGAIN ZVIZDIC ACTS INDIVIDUALLY

 

SARAJEVO, April 24 /SRNA/ - Chairman of the Council of Ministers of BiH, Denis Zvizdic, is again acting individually in the communications with other countries, interfering in the departments he does not manage and which he has no jurisdiction over, which can cause unacceptable damage to BiH, warned Deputy Chairman of the Council of Ministers, Vjekoslav Bevanda.

 

Commenting on a statement by Zvizdic in which he cites he will again write to Croatian Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic and EU leaders over the construction of the Peljesac Bridge, Bevanda has warned in a written statement that the Council of Ministers of BiH did not vote on this issue, thus there is no official position of BiH to be represented by any official.

"If the personal views are represented, but also the views of the BiH residents whom the bridge construction is directly related to, then the signing of the Peljesac bridge construction treaty and the commencement of works should be welcomed, as BiH’s only coastal town Neum will be relieved of the summer traffic chaos, which will contribute to a better tourist offer," said Bevanda, who is the Minister of Finance and Treasury of BiH.

He has reminded that the Council of Ministers of BiH did not adopt the conclusion of the House of Representatives of the Parliamentary Assembly of BiH from the 49th session held on July 5 last year, requesting the Council of Ministers to send a note to Croatia on suspending all activities related to the construction of the Peljesac Bridge until the full mutual agreement is achieved.

Also at its 108th session held on July 19 last year, the Council of Ministers of BiH unanimously adopted a report by Minister of Transport and Communications of BiH, Ismir Jusko, which cited that there were no formal obstacles for Peljesac Bridge construction, and that this should not be associated with the Convention on the Law of the Sea.

Bevanda has noted that he had repeatedly sent urgent appeals to Zvizdic to verify the conclusions from the session between the Council of Ministers of BiH and the Government of Croatia held on July 2017, but this has never been put on the agenda nor the reason for it has been explained.

He has assessed that it can be concluded from all this that it is about Zvizdic's pre-election activities and the views of his party, not of the executive body he manages, and which should represent the views of the ruling majority.

Deputy Chairman of the BiH Council of Ministers has called on senior BiH officials to keep election campaigns and positioning on election lists aside when it comes to BiH's interests, its relations with its neighbors and the European Union, and to engage in the work responsibly and professionally.

Given that Zvizdic announced that he would write letters again on behalf of BiH over the signing the Peljesac Bridge Treaty, Minister Bevanda announced that he would protect the dignity of the Council of Ministers, which is a collective body, and that he will request acting to other states with agreed positions, as it is the essence of BiH and its state order.

Chairman of the Council of Ministers Denis Zvizdic announced yesterday that he would again ask Croatian Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic, the competent commissioner of the European Commission and all relevant factors, to stop with the construction of the Peljesac Bridge until BiH achieves full access to the open sea, in accordance with the current UN Convention.

He has said that the signing of the Peseljac Bidge construction treaty in Dubrovnik represents an incorrect and bad neighborly procedure that does not respect the international standards and the previously presented facts and interests of BiH. /end/vos
