"This visit had shown that RS is getting in world quite different status from the one that it had before" - explained premier Dodik expressing the contentment because RS will in the future have "better and different starting political position".

SARAJEVO - The visit of RS premier Milorad Dodik to Washington was very successful - assessed the spokesman of the Office of High Representative in B&H Duncan Boulivant at the press conference of international organisations in Sarajevo.

BANJA LUKA - The alternative government of RS will be constituted on March 2 - stated in Banja Luka its president Dubravko Prstojevic . At the press conference he appealed on RS Government urgently to train equally the members of the Ministry of Internal Affairs.
