Hopes for that are slim, though. While some faces changed in the Oct. 3 vote, most Bosnians again voted along ethnic lines, reinforcing deadlock over the country’s future. Although most Bosniaks and many Croats want a unified state, Bosnia’s Serbs overwhelmingly support leaders who want to break their part of the country away from the rest of Bosnia.
After seeing Mrs. Clinton at the embassy dedication, the secessionist-minded Bosnian Serb leader Milorad Dodik told reporters he still does not favor a revamped constitution strengthening central government powers. Instead, he said, any changes should “give ethnic groups the right to self-determination.”
Mrs. Clinton will visit Kosovo on Wednesday to press her case for talks with Serbia, and she plans to call on Kosovo’s ethnic Albanian and minority Serb communities to settle their differences. She is scheduled to make these appeals in the capital, Pristina, and the Serb-majority town of Gracanica.
