RS athletes receive Serbian passports
BELGRADE -- Prime Minister Ivica Dačić handed Serbian passports to a group of eight talented athletes from the Serb entity in Bosnia, RS.
Based on the Agreement on Special Parallel Relations between Serbia and the RS and the right to own a dual citizenship, the athletes will be able to compete under Serbia's flag at international sporting events if they so wish.
Passports were given to Denis Marjanović (kickboxing), Darko Savić (kayak), Biljana Cvijanović (athletics), Darija Kitić (shooting), Miljan Antonić (table tennis), Maja Stojković (taekwondo), Aleksandra Samardžić (judo), Sandro Poletan (boxing).
Skier Zana Novaković and handball player Velibor Manjić, who were prevented from attending the ceremony by other commitments, will be handed their passports later.
“Which team they may choose to compete for is something that concerns their own his personal preference, but this is not the most important thing here. We want Serbia and the RS to have as close cooperation as possible and it will continue even after the reshuffle of the (Serbian) government, when we will hold a new joint session, this time in Serbia,” Dačić told reporters at the Palace of Serbia in Belgrade.
He added that the giving of the passports is only part of a project of cooperation in the field of sports and youth.
Before the passport giving ceremony, Dačić met with RS Prime Minister Željka Cvijanović, who said that the initiative is an expression of care for the future of young people.
She said that she and Prime Minister Dačić also discussed other joint projects between the RS and Serbia.
“The ties between the Serb Republic and Serbia are at the top of our priority list. I can see Serbia thinks the same way,” Cvijanović said, recalling the fact that Serbia is a signatory to the Dayton Accord, which put an end to the war in BiH and based on which the RS and Serbia signed the Agreement on Special Parallel Relations.
