EU: Genocide In Srebrenitsa Is One Of Gloomy Moments Of Modern European History

Genocide in Srebrenica is one of the most gloomy moments of modern European history.

This is stated in a joint statement by the EU Supreme EU for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy of Josep Boar and the EU Commissioner on the neighborhood and expansion of Oliver Varheli on the occasion of the 29th anniversary of the genocide in Srebrenitsa.

In the statement, more than 8300 men and boys who were systematically killed in Srebrenitsa were honored.

The statement calls for regional leaders “to reject the disagreement of rhetoric and act on the basis of truth, justice, trust and dialogue.”

“In order to heal the wounds of the past, it is necessary to accept and teach historical facts, to honor and remember the victims, to identify those who are still missing, and to hold all the perpetrators accountable. This is the key to eliminating the roots of hatred that led to the genocide. We must bring bridges together among us, there is no place for those who deny genocide, tries to rewrite history and glorify war criminals, ”the statement emphasizes.

The statement reminded that the EU Council in March decided to start negotiations on the entry of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

“This is an important opportunity to achieve progress in reforms that will increase the democracy, prosperity and safety of the people of Bosnia and Herzegovina and bring the country closer to EU membership,” the statement said.
