Good Q: will the report from the credentials committee prompt a vote in the UNGA on deferring the credentials? twitter.com/engagedharma/s…
One report says that the UN General Assembly will vote to make the final decision. Question is: When? https://t.co/7CL2VjSMhY— Shaunyata (@engagedharma) December 1, 2021
Thank you Secretary Blinken. Pravda newspaper reports Mr. Dodik could get military support from Moscow. The rest of Bosnians are for democracy, rule of law and human rights for all citizens of BiH. twitter.com/SecBlinken/sta…
The United States remains firm in our commitment to the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Bosnia and Herzegovina. BiH’s leaders should turn away from brinksmanship and build consensus to secure a better future for all its citizens.— Secretary Antony Blinken (@SecBlinken) December 1, 2021
