Bosnian Serb Leader Invited by Trump, US Embassy Won't Give him a Visa
Tuesday, 27 December 2016

The US Embassy in Sarajevo has turned down a request of the Bosnian Serb entity's president Milorad Dodik to be given a diplomatic visa to attend the inauguration ball to be prepared for the US President-elect Donald Trump, Hina reports. 

"I am denied a diplomatic visa a day after the talks (with a State Department officials, with an explanation that I cannot go there as a representative of Bosnia and Herzegovina," Dodik told local media outlets on Monday evening.

Hoyt Brian Yee, US Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for European and Euroasian Affairs, who was recently on a tour of southeastern Europe, apparently criticised Dodik for obstructing Bosnia and Herzegovina's efforts to make progress, and this seemed to be the reason for not issuing a diplomatic visa to Dodik.

Dodik refused to follow the 'guidelines' of the US State Department and told Hoyt Yee that it was the US meddling in the country that resulted in the current situation.
