"You're not welcome. You're going to break your teeth"

That was said by the Serbian member of the Presidency of BiH and the leader of the SNSD, Milorad Dodik.

Dodik called for the preservation of political unity and said that the response of Republika Srpska would be even stronger.
"You are not accepted, you are not welcome and we will not talk to you," is how the Serbian member of the Presidency of BiH, Milorad Dodik, responded to the arrival of Christian Schmidt in BiH.
As he explained, Schmidt did not get the consent of the United Nations Security Council, which is an obligation to take over the mandate of the High Representative from Valentin Inzko, who resigned earlier.
The Dayton Peace Agreement was also violated because the Republika Srpska, as a signatory, did not give its consent to the appointment of a German politician.
"We have no reason to believe in good intentions or anyone who comes from that side. I hear Schmidt say that he has experience, but we also have experience that does not allow us to allow an illegitimate, unelected foreigner to pass binding decisions because then it is the end of both the Republika Srpska and our national identity in this area", Dodik pointed out.
