Serb leader: Bosnia is ‘falling apart’
SARAJEVO | Bosnian Serb leader Milorad Dodik said Sunday that Bosnia-Herzegovina is “falling apart” and warned that Serbs would not accept further decentralization needed for it to progress toward EU membership.
“Bosnia is a divided society,” Mr. Dodik, president of the Bosnian Serb entity Republika Srpska, said in an interview on state television to mark the 19th anniversary of Bosnian Serb-proclaimed autonomy.
Mr. Dodik said postwar Bosnia, which consists of two semiautonomous entities, the Republika Srpska and the Muslim-Croat Federation, “is in the phase of falling apart … as it has not found an internal consensus on how it should look.”
Bosnian Serbs formed their own institutions in January 1992 to counter Muslims and Croats aiming to proclaim independence from the former Yugoslavia.
The Dayton Accord in 1995 ended three years of war and divided the Balkan country into two entities linked by weak central institutions.
Queen’s head will grace British stamps
LONDON | Britain’s business minister says he will guarantee that the monarch’s head will appear on British postage stamps even if Royal Mail is sold to a foreign buyer.
Sculptor Arnold Machin’s depiction of a youthful Queen Elizabeth II has appeared on billions of stamps since it was first commissioned in 1967 and has become a classic of British design.
So there was disquiet when media reports suggested that plans to part-privatize the Royal Mail could mean that the queen’s head would disappear from Britain’s letters and parcels.
Business Minister Ed Davey told the Mail on Sunday newspaper that he would put forward an amendment to make it impossible for a buyer to remove the monarch’s image from stamps without royal assent.
