MOSCOW, March 11. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on Tuesday met Milorad Dodik, the president of the Serb Republic (Republika Srpska) of Bosnia and Herzegovina, who arrived in Russia to receive the 2013 Award of the International Public Foundation for the Unity of Orthodox Christian Nations named after His Holiness Patriarch Alexiy II.
“The talks dwelt on cooperation between Russia and the Serb Republic, which is an integral part of Bosnia and Herzegovina,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Tuesday. Both sides said they were satisfied with development of trade and economic cooperation, including investments, and cultural and humanitarian ties.
Lavrov and Dodik confirmed their intention “to continue building interaction, especially in implementing major energy projects in the territory of the Serb entity in Bosnia and the rest of Bosnia and Herzegovina,” the Russian Foreign Ministry went on to say.
The two sides also considered questions of Bosnian settlement. They called on all the parties and international representatives in Bosnia to strictly observe the Framework (Dayton) Agreement for peace in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Urgent international and regional issues were also part of the agenda.
