President Cvijanović thanked the Kostajnica Mayor, Nikola Janjetović, for the plaque he handed her on occasion of the celebration of the municipality’s Patron Saint Day, as a sign of gratitude for the selfless help in repairing the consequences of the earthquake.
“On thanking Mayor Janjetović for this award, I told him that within the Republic of Srpska institutions we need to be aware that regardless of the size of a local community, our efforts must be equally focused on the small, as on the larger municipalities with a higher number of inhabitants. This means assisting communities in providing citizens with all which is necessary in terms of infrastructure, but also with other conditions and facilities, important for the everyday living of our citizens,” stressed the President of Srpska.
“I am committed to achieving this together with the Government, but also with the support of all our representatives at the level of BiH in each and every one of our municipalities, including Kostajnica,” concluded President Cvijanović.
