Serbian President Boris Tadić is among the recipients of the Medal of the Serb Republic, presented on the 20th anniversary of the Serb entity’s founding.
RS President Milorad Dodik signed a decree awarding the medal to several former RS presidents and a number of Serbian Orthodox Church (SPC) dignitaries and citizens.
At a ceremony held in Banja Luka on Monday, Dodik stated that medals represent recognition to individuals who contributed to the creation, strengthening and promotion of RS.
Receiving the medal, Tadić said that it represents an obligation to make cooperation on both sides of the Drina River more fruitful.
“Our obligation is to make this cooperation more fruitful for the benefit of all citizens. This cooperation should connect not only the Serbian people, but rather all nations and people of good will,” Tadić stressed at the award ceremony in view of the Day of RS and its patron saint day, St. Stefan.
