President of the National Assembly of the Republic of Srpska Nedeljko Čubrilović welcomed the decision of the International Court of Justice dismissing the revision of judgment BiH against Serbia in 2007.

"The court's decision to request the initiation of the audit did not come from the governing bodies, on behalf of Bosnia and Herzegovina as a state, was the only possible solution with respect for the rights, or the legitimacy and legality of the institutions of Bosnia and Herzegovina," said President Čubrilović.

From the beginning, says the president of the National Assembly, it was clear that it was a personal request for review of the judgment, taken outside the institutions of the system, which led to the complication and deterioration of political relations in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

"We are delighted that the International Court of Justice in The Hague made this decision relatively quickly and prevented further escalation of the political and ethnic relations in the country and in the region. I want to thank everyone who made an effort during deciding on this major question, as revision of judgment, to go back to the institutions of the system, and then to prove, especially in communication with the Court, that it is about any application of a state, but on the request of individuals," said Čubrilović.

President Čubrilović expressed the hope that this decision of the Court in The Hague lead to calming political passions within BiH and that all together will return to the essential problems of the citizens.
