The meeting was attended by the Ambassador of BiH to the UN Zlatko Lagumdzija.

Becirovic and Komsic thanked the OIC, which has 57 member countries with BiH having the status of an observer, for its support to the country.

Becirovic and Komsic stressed the importance of adopting the resolution on declaring July 11 the International Day of Remembrance and Commemoration of the Genocide in Srebrenica committed in 1995. They emphasized that the UN courts had passed final verdicts on the genocide in Srebrenica and that there is an international obligation to respect international law and UN courts.

They said that it is important to adopt the resolution in order to protect the truth about the genocide in Srebrenica and stressed the importance of international solidarity in dealing with the past, so that what happened in the eastern BiH town never happens again.

They also underlined the importance of the OIC Resolution adopted in 2011 at the 39th session of the Council of Foreign Ministers of the OIC in Astana, which invited the members of this body to mark July 11 as a Day of Mourning. That call was additionally emphasized at the 48th regular session of the Council of Foreign Ministers of the OIC in Islamabad in 2022 when the Resolution on Bosnia and Herzegovina was adopted.
