Yuri Afanasiev, rezidentni koordinator Ujedinjenih nacija, danas je u ime tima UN-a u Bosni i Hercegovini, osudio teroristički napad u Zvorniku.

“Potrebno je očuvati sigurnost svih građana, i ovaj incident ne smije ugroziti stabilnost zajednica i napredak u izgradnji mira i tolerancije kojeg Bosna i Hercegovina postiže”, rekao je Afanasiev, i apelovao na nadležne vlasti i institucije da provedu punu i brzu istragu.

Afanasiev je prepoznao pozitivnu ulogu vlasti i lokalnih službi, posebno načelnika opštine i predsjednika Skupštine opštine u Zvorniku koji rade na smirivanju situacije u njihovoj zajednici.
