Chairmen of the Presidency of Bosnia and Herzegovina
Friday's appointment of Sebija Izetbegovic, wife of the Bosniak member of the Bosnian Presidency, as director of the University Clinical Center of Sarajevo, UKCS, an important medical institute, has caused controversy in Bosnia.
Sebija, who has been director of the Abdulah Nakash hospital in Sarajevo since 2013, was elected at a session of the board of the UKCS on January 6.
Relations with Serbia are improving, while Bosnia-Herzegovina will not recognize Kosovo in the foreseeable future, Bakir Izetbegovic has said.
Izetbegovic, the leader of the SDA party and the Bosniak (Muslim) member of the country's tripartite presidency, made these statements for Turkey's Anadolu news agency.
Serbian PM Aleksandar Vucic on Wednesday laid flowers and paid respects to the Srebrenica victims at the memorial center Potocari in Srebrenica.
Vucic led a Serbian delegation that paid respect to the victims, along with Srebrenica Mayor Camil Durakovic, Bosnian Presidency member Bakir Izetbegovic and chair of the Bosnia-Herzegovina Council of Ministers Denis Zvizdic.
Bakir Izetbegovic has said that Serbian PM Aleksanda Vucic's initiative to establish a joint day of remembrance is "premature and incomplete."
Milorad Dodik's "destructive and confrontational policy is the Federation's key problem, that is transferred to Bosnia and the region," says Bakir Izetbegovic.
This Bosniak (Muslim) member of the country's tripartite presidency was referring to the Muslim-Croat Federation (FBiH) entity of Bosnia. Dodik is the president of the Serb entity, the RS.
