Chairman of the Presidency of BiH, Bakir Izetbegovic, complained about construction of hydro power plant with installed capacity of 300 MW, near Dubrovnik.

It is investment of 170 million of euros, and HPP in Dubrovnik would get water from Neretva river, which means from BiH area.

The construction of HPP was agreed between Aleksandar Dzombic-prime minister of Serbian Republic and Radomir Cacic-deputy of prime minister of Croatia.

Izetbegovic warned that, according to Constitution of BiH, the Presidency was responsible for negotiation and conclusion of international contracts that should be ratified by Parliamentary Assembly of BiH.

He also said that on March 14th, 2010, BiH ratified the Convention on the assessment of environmental impact across borders, so it was obliged to implement its provisions.
