BELGRADE – Serbia wants to demonstrate an active role in the process of maintaining regional stability, Interior Minister Nebojsa Stefanovic said Wednesday, noting the country’s stability was under no threat despite tensions in Bosnia and Herzegovina over an upcoming Republika Srpska Day referendum.

Speaking to reporters, he declined to elaborate on consultations held by top state officials in Belgrade late Tuesday, reiterating that, despite concerns over developments related to the referendum, the stability of Serbia was not under threat.

“The government and the PM are doing everything that is in our power to ensure Serbia is stable as well as a guarantor and support to Republika Srpska in terms of boosting stability and economic development,” Stefanovic said.

The government is fighting to ensure Serbia is safe and secure so it can continue to strengthen economically, he said.
