The district of Brčko is an administratively autonomous territorial unit under the sovereignty of Bosnia and Herzegovina, and officially belongs to the two entities of that nation. Corresponds to the territory of the municipality of Brčko. After the Treaty of Dayton, which ended the War in Bosnia in 1995, it was agreed that this district would be administered independently by the multinational peacekeeping forces. The territory is strategically important because it is between the two parts of the Republika Srpska. That is why in 2000 it was agreed that this territory was a condominium of the Republika Srpska and the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina, but in practice it has autonomy depending directly on the Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
