During the talk with the vice-president of the National Council of the Slovak Republic, Ľuboš Blaha, and Jaroslav Haško, the Governor of the Trenčín region and the former Minister of Defense of Slovakia, besides apostrophizing traditionally good relationships of Slovaks and Serbs, Stevandić informed Blaha about the situation in Bosnia and Herzegovina and how the Republic of Srpska treats the problems caused by external interference that destabilizes the processes of reconciliation and development.

Srpska contributes to the process of EU integrations, but it faces attempts to seize its property and jurisdictions by abuse of Mr. Christian Smidth, a person presenting himself as High Representative in BiH, without the confirmation of the Security Council and enacting laws by himself and ordering the persecution of legitimately elected officials of the Republic of Srpska. We are enduring political violence by the crazy instrumentalization of the judiciary, directed outside BiH, mainly from embassies, like the USA. Serbs in Kosovo are facing physical violence and persecution accompanied by the silence of the powerful but not all Western countries. And we, in the Republic of Srpska, are facing political-judiciary violence, for now, and it is destroying the Dayton Peace Agreement and leading to conflicts that are the way even to physical violence, warned Stevandić. 

The interlocutors also exchanged views about economic cooperation and investing of Slovak companies in the Republic of Srpska, where great possibilities are available.

At the end of the visit, Stevandić thanked the hosts, who showed a high level of respect and understanding by not recognizing Kosovo and understanding the situation in Bosnia and Herzegovina, and especially by their balanced attitudes and non-interference in internal issues.
