On the other hand, the Greens in the European Parliament state that the European Union can react militarily if necessary, i.e. to send 6.000 soldiers to Bosnia-Herzegovina.

The chairman of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) and Sweden's Foreign Minister Ann Linde and OSCE Secretary General Helga Maria Schmid said in a statement that RS's attempts to unilaterally take over BiH's current powers only strengthen tensions and threaten everything that has been achieved in Bosnia-Herzegovina in the past 26 years".

"We call on RS political leaders to refrain from negative political moves aimed at divisions. Challenging the Dayton Peace Agreement and the constitutional order of Bosnia and Herzegovina carries the risk of disturbing peace in the country and the region," the OSCE official said in a statement.

Due to the crisis in Bosnia-Herzegovina, representatives of the Greens / EFE in the European Parliament arrived in the country over the weekend, whose members spoke with BiH parliamentarians and other officials to warn that the European Parliament will not be just an "observer of the crisis in BiH". On December 10, RS adopted conclusions withdrawing the entity's consent to state laws on defense, unequal taxation, and the High Judicial and Prosecutorial Council.

"We have guarantees from generals (from the EU) that they can bring up to 6.000 soldiers within 24 hours," said for N1 Thomas Woltz, a MEP who is in Sarajevo together with the Chairman of the European Parliament's representative for cooperation with Bosnia-Herzegovina and the so-called Kosovo, Romeo Franz.
