BANJA LUKA, Bosnia (February 24,2008) - The genocidal Serbian creature in Bosnia "the RS" has threatened to hold a referendum on secession from Bosnia if a majority of U.N. member states and the European Union recognise Kosovo's independence.

Such a move would put into question the Dayton Peace Agreement which ended the 1992-1995 Serbian,Montenegrin and Croatian aggressions against Bosnia.

Washington was the first to condemn such an initiative.

"Bosnia is a sovereign and independent state and its territorial integrity and sovereignty are an undeniable fact," the U.S. Ambassador to Bosnia Charles English told Bosnian daily Oslobodjenje.

"The three-and-a-half-year long war was expected to provide an answer to the question if someone had a right to secede from Bosnia. Dayton (peace agreement) solved the issue.There is no right to secession," the U.S. Ambassador stated.

The British ambassador to Bosnia, Matthew Rycroft, said in Banja Luka that his country had recognized the independence of Kosovo. After talking with the prime minister of the genocidal Serbian creature in Bosnia (RS) Milorad Dodik,Ambassador Rycroft stated that "RS will not secede from Bosnia, nor would the status of this entity change".

A member of the Bosnian Presidency Haris Silajdzic stated in the Bosnian capital Sarajevo that: "Resolution against Kosovo independence proclamation adopted by the RS entity parliament, has no legal effect, for entities are not states and have no such jurisdiction."

The International Community's High Representative in Bosnia,Miroslav Lajcak stressed that Bosnia is an internationally recognized state whose sovereignty and territorial integrity is guaranteed by the Dayton Peace Agreement.

"Entities of Bosnia have no right to secede from Bosnia under the Dayton Peace Agreement. The constitutional structure of Bosnia,including the existence of the entities, can only be changed in accordance with the amendment procedure prescribed in the Bosnian Constitution," Lajcak stated.

The High Representative expects that the Bosnian authorities will fulfill their obligations and maintain public order.

Political analyst Srecko Latal did not hide his concerns.

"If they really proceeded with organising a referendum, that would destabilise Bosnia further because the international community would clearly not allow it," Latal said.

Other analysts share similar views, stressing the international community should, despite opposite calls by some local politicians, maintain its presence in the country.

"The international community will have to stay for a longer period of time in Bosnia," political analyst Ivan Sijakovic said.

For Emil Habul, another Sarajevo-based analyst, the parliament of the genocidal Serbian creature in Bosnia (RS) tried to "take up positions for the future."

"RS secession is an idea that has been smoldering since 1992, but Dodik and his government understand that it is impossible to achieve," Habul said.

Political analyst Tanja Topic warned that Bosnia is "unstable and fragile." But she stressed the Southeastern European country's "borders will be inviolable" due to the "clear position of the international community."

"Bosnia is an international protectorate and as long as there is a strong presence of the international community a referendum in RS is a big political illusion," Topic said.
