The number of positive reactions to the content of the Draft Resolution on Srebrenica Genocide, which will be on the agenda of the UN General Assembly early next month, is growing in the region, according to the Srebrenica Memorial Centre. Pročitaj više

Natasa Kandic, the founder of the Belgrade-based Fund for Humanitarian Law, one of the most important organisations for documenting the facts about war crimes in the region, stressed the importance of the document's adoption.

“It is not acceptable – in terms of civilisation, to reject the Resolution on the 1995 Srebrenica Genocide – precisely because some new generations will not forgive the Serbia of today, which shows no strength to distance itself from the past in which there were no good deeds,” she said.

Veton Suroi, journalist and writer, one of the negotiators for the peace and independence of Kosovo and the founder of the KOHA media group, said that the adoption of the document is a key test for Serbia.

“Kosovo's membership in the Council of Europe and the UN Resolution on Srebrenica Genocide are spring tests for the stability of Serbia's Euro-Atlantic community. Disputing these issues further distances Serbia from normalisation,” Suroi underlined.

More than 200 intellectuals

The Srebrenica Memorial Centre asked over 200 intellectuals and officials in the country, the region and the world to declare themselves and encourage the adoption of this document.

The memorial centre thanked Rwandan President Paul Kagame and German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier.

“In addition to Rwanda and Germany as proponents, for now the official co-proponents of the Resolution are Chile, New Zealand, Malaysia, Jordan, Turkey, Slovenia, Albania, France, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Italy, Ireland, Liechtenstein, the Netherlands and Finland,” according to the Centre.
