The European Parliament adopted an amendment by three lawmakers to its annual report on the Foreign Affairs Committee calling for sanctions against BiH Presidency member Milorad Dodik. The amendment was submitted by MEPs Pedro Marques, Tonino Picula and Thijs Reuten, with 504 MEPs voting in favour of it.
The amendment strongly condemns the unconstitutional secessionist measures of the Republika Srpska authorities, which aim to establish parallel institutions in the fields of medicine and medical devices, justice, defence, security and taxation.
