The UN resolution is approved, the Serbs committed genocide in Bosnia

The General Assembly of the United Nations has approved the resolution on the genocide in Srebrenica. 84 countries, including Albania, voted in favor, 19 against and 68 countries chose to abstain.

The resolution, which proposes that July 11 be declared the International Day of Remembrance for the Victims of the Srebrenica Genocide, as well as condemns the denial of the genocide and the glorification of war criminals, was sponsored by thirty countries, among them Albania.

The countries that officially proposed it were Germany and Rwanda. At the beginning of the session, the diplomatic representative of Berlin clarified that the stamp of genocide is not placed on a people, but on the criminals who commit it and those who deny it.

"Our mission is to honor the victims and support the survivors. This resolution is not directed against anyone, especially not against Serbia, an honored member of the organization, but exclusively against the perpetrators of the genocide", said Antje Leendertse, Ambassador of Germany to the UN.

The Serbian President, Aleksandar Vucic, was present at the session of UN General Assembly, where after the approval he made actor gestures, kissing the Serbian flag and then covering his back with it. In his speech, he warned that this resolution will open Pandora's box in the region.

"Why did you propose the resolution? We had all the decisions. Everything was over. Why? Because someone needed it politically. I personally went to Srebrenica to humble myself, I was lynched and a day later I reached out to those who did it. This is not about reconciliation. This is something that will open old wounds and create complete political chaos," said the Serbian president.

In Srebrenica, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbian forces killed over 8,000 Muslim men and boys in July 1995. The UN tribunal in The Hague has convicted a number of criminals for this genocide.
