Bosnian Serb Government Approved

Aleksandar Dzombic attends his swearing-in ceremony
Bosnian Serb lawmakers have confirmed the government of Prime Minister Aleksandar Dzombic, who said his cabinet would focus on the economy.

Addressing the parliament of Bosnia's Serb entity, Republika Srpska, he insisted that integration into Europe "should not be abused [in order] to change Bosnia's constitutional structure," in a reference to further centralization of the Balkans country.

Since the 1992-1995 Bosnian war, Bosnia has been divided into two semi-independent entities -- Republika Srpska and the Muslim-Croat Federation.

Each region has its own parliament and government and the two are linked into a country by a central government and parliament.
