The President of the Republic of Srpska Željka Cvijanović hosted a reception today at the Palace of the Republic on the occasion of marking the Day of the Republic of Srpska. The President of the Republic said that Srpska was stable and that the institutions have been working in the interest of the citizens, emphasizing that without unity there would be no good results.
The President Cvijanović highlighted that the priority is to maintain peace, without which there is no stable progress and no proper functioning of the institutions.
“We are all on the same mission. Both, we and those coming after us will work later, will build and improve Srpska to make it even better and more stable”, said the President Cvijanović.
The President of the Republic said that everyone should be pleased with what was done in the present year, and added that there was enough room for progress.
The President Cvijanović stated that many challenges and threats will continue to exist in BiH, but that Srpska must adapt and respond readily.
“We know we have to stick together otherwise there is no result. Many citizens expect much of us, but it can be felt that there is love for Srpska and its institutions. It is overly important capital to gamble on and these are the benchmarks for our work in the coming period”, said the President Cvijanović.
The President of Srpska said that this year the obligations of Srpska were regularly organised and fulfilled, and that salaries and pensions increased.
“The social sphere has been strengthened and from 2016 to the present each year carries a record boost, among them those in the field of employment. We have more to do in the next year. We need work, responsibility, determination, responsiveness, and we have to solve problems and face challenges”, said the Republic of Srpska President stressing that there was no room for disrespect for the Republic of Srpska institutions, to which protection many gave their lives during the defense and homeland war.
“Institutions must be respected and Srpska can be a society where everyone can be content”, said the President Cvijanović.
The President of the Republic stated that in the future, Srpska may be more infrastructurally built, and that many projects have been in progress and are being implemented after the blockages had been removed.
“And that will bring a better image of Srpska”, said the President Cvijanović and thanked the officials at the reception for working to strengthen and preserve Srpska, which has not been a gift from heaven.
“We need to preserve the competencies and strength of the Republic of Srpska”, said the President of the Republic of Srpska and added that the meeting of Srpska officials with representatives of religious communities took place in a good atmosphere.
The President of the Republic congratulated the upcoming holidays to the guests and the citizens.
