Djordjevic was quoted as saying that that Drvar has always been a Serb town, and Zeljko Komsic thinks this was "undiplomatic."

He also said that Drvar would never be a Serb city.

"Drvar is Partisan (a reference to WW2 Communist forces) and it has always been a Bosnian town. And it will always be, despite the wishes and aspirations of Serbia in BiH, which have been manifested in the last decades through the greatest tragedy of BiH and its citizens. I hope that the Serbian ambassador will abstain in future from Serbifying Bosnian towns. There is room for everyone in this country, but there is no place for any ethnic exclusivity," said Komsic, according to the Sarajevo-based Klix website.

At the opening of the Consular Office of the Republic of Serbia in Drvar, Djordjevic said that it would continue to be a Serb town - i.e., one with an ethnic Serb majority - "as it always has been."
