The President of the Republic of Srpska Željka Cvijanović met today in Novi Grad with the leadership of this municipality. The President of the Republic said that she wanted the issue of radioactive waste disposal on Trgovska Gora to be resolved diplomatically, through the talks, because no one wants to resolve it in court.

“The commitment of the Government of Srpska is to continue the implementation of projects in Novi Grad, but also to give support for solving two key issues – recategorisation of the border crossing and the problem of Trgovska gora”, it was said by the President Cvijanović.

The President of the Republic of Srpska stated that all levels of government should be involved in solving these problems, since that is an issue on which BiH can pass the test, that is, to show whether it is possible to work together and defend the interests of the citizens.

“I wish the issue of Trgovska Gora to be resolved diplomatically through the talks, because no one is interested in resolving issues in the court. We are here to give support to the citizens who are fighting for a healthy environment”, it was stressed by Cvijanović.

The President Cvijanović pointed out that, despite the corona virus pandemic, the situation in Novi Grad is stable when it comes to the municipal budget and that the epidemiological situation is under control.

The President of the Republic stressed that significant projects have been implemented in this local community with the support of the Government of Srpska.
