Newsline: US embassy in Sarajevo denies meddling in Bosnian election

The US embassy in Bosnia-Herzegovina rejected accusations by Serb nationalist leaders that Washington is trying to interfere in next month’s general election. The embassy said in a statement that “the United States is not interfering in the election process and we strongly reject such appalling accusations”. Bosnian Serb President Milorad Dodik has accused the US and Britain of supporting his opponents and trying to influence the outcome of the October 7 vote. The election is seen as crucial indicator of whether the country, ravaged by a civil war in the 1990s, will join the European Union and Nato, or continue with bickering between its Serb, Muslim and Croat ethnic groups.
