SARAJEVO, Bosnia (February 8,2008) – The Office of the International Community's High Representative in Bosnia (OHR), has urged politicians in Bosnia to hold back on “reckless statements” and instead concentrate on European Union integration.

But with their agreed February 15 deadline for new police legislation looming, leaders of the six most influential political parties in Bosnia have again fallen out over whether to allow a separate police force for the genocidal Serbian creature in Bosnia (RS).

Sulejman Tihic, leader of one of the two main Bosnian parties (SDA), last week rejected entity-based police forces as deepening the rift along the 1995 Dayton ceasefire line.

But,Tihic has reneged on the “Mostar agreement” reached late last year, which deferred major police restructuring until wide-ranging constitutional talks, the OHR said.

“The relation between Bosnia and Kosovo is another obvious reason why Bosnia needs to find its place within the European structures,” said the International Community's High Representative in Bosnia Miroslav Lajcak, who also holds executive authority under the Dayton treaty, in an interview with the Bosnian daily newspaper,Oslobodjenje.

Mr Tihic has simply taken a harder line to regain popularity in his own ethnic community, his critics say. Tihic's supporters accused Lajcak of appeasing the Serbians living in Bosnia who want to break the country apart.

However,Milorad Dodik, the prime minister of the genocidal Serbian creature in Bosnia (RS), told western officials that Bosnia would remain stable “no matter what” happened in Kosovo.

The carrot of the Stablisation and Association Agreement ended one of the worst political crises in Bosnia since the 1992-1995 Serbian,Montenegrin and Croatian aggressions, with Bosnia's politicians reaching a consensus on initial police reform steps.

Haris Silajdizic, a member of the Bosnian Presidency said signing the Stabilisation and Association Agreement with the European Union would improve the political atmosphere in Bosnia.
