IVANTSOV: RUSSIA DOES NOT ACCEPT INTERFERENCE INTO INTERNAL AFFAIRS OF OTHERS

 

SARAJEVO, June 11 /SRNA/ - Russian Ambassador to BiH Petr Ivantsov said in Sarajevo Tuesday evening that Russia categorically refused interference in other countries’ internal affairs, thus it was interested in a stable, prosperous and independent BiH.

 

"Russia, as one of the guarantors of the Dayton Peace Agreement, sees its task in promoting strict adherence to the standards and principles of the Dayton Accords in accordance with the guaranteed equality of the two entities and three constituent peoples," Ivantsov said.

In his address at the reception over the Russia Day, which was held at the Europe Hotel in Sarajevo, he pointed out that Russia firmly held those positions with no intend of changing it.

"Local stakeholders must resolve independently all issues of vital interest for BiH through dialogue in accordance with the procedures defined in Dayton. The imposition of these or other international recipes will not lead to the finding of sustainable compromises as it has been repeatedly shown," Ivantsov said.

He stressed that Russia systematically developed cooperation with BiH in all sectors including education and culture, adding that Russia was among the largest foreign investors and foreign trade partners.

Ivantsov stressed that bilateral cultural and humanitarian exchanges were progressing.

He added that the audience was greatly interested in the performances of cultural and artistic ensembles from Russia, as well as the exhibitions and shows of Russian film in Srpska and the Federation of BiH.

"We are pleased with the fact that young people study Russian language more actively and use the available opportunities for free education at the leading Russian universities," Ivantsov said.

He said that Russian educational institutions provided 63 state scholarships this year, while nine professors from Bosnia and Herzegovina would be staying this summer in Russia to improve skills in teaching Russian language.

"Our common goal is a strong, safe and powerful Russia, open to partnership and cooperation with the entire world based on equality and mutual respect," Ivantsov concluded.

The reception was attended by Presidency Chairman Milorad Dodik, Republika Srpska Prime Minister Radovan Višković, Deputy Chairman of the House of Peoples Nebojša Radmanović, deputy to the House of Peoples Dušanka Majkić, His Eminence Metropolitan Hrizostom of Dabar-Bosnia, the leaders of the SDS Vukota Govedarica and the PDP Branislav Borenović, and numerous representatives of diplomatic, political and religious circles. /end/vos
