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

Becirovic and Komsic emphasized the importance of international solidarity in dealing with the past in order to ensure that what happened in Srebrenica never happens again.

“Our obligation to the victims, their families and future generations is a civilizational one, and together we must fight against forgetting and denial”, said Becirovic.
Komsic said that, through the denial of the genocide committed against Bosniaks in and around Srebrenica, as well as through glorification of convicted war criminals, the surviving victims of the genocide are exposed to attacks on their dignity every day.

The Presidency members stressed that the resolution would also provide support to the mothers of Srebrenica in the fight for truth and justice and help the process of reconciliation within Bosnia and Herzegovina, as well as the region.

They also emphasized the global importance of genocide prevention, and the importance of studying genocide in the education of children and young people.
They argued that, through education about Srebrenica, the youth will have the ability to recognize and deal with genocide, and actively engage in preventing it in the future.

The UN General Assembly is expected to discuss the resolution beginning of May.
