EUD/EUSR rejects any attempts to deny the genocide in Srebrenica

Today the RS National Assembly held a special session to discuss the 2004 Report of the Commission on Srebrenica.

In this context, the European Union rejects any denial, relativisation or misinterpretation of the genocide in Srebrenica. We also condemn the use of inflammatory ethno-political rhetoric and actions.

We call upon all political leaders and others in positions of authority in BiH to lead the way in honouring victims and promoting reconciliation.

The EU is a union of values; any country aspiring to join the EU is expected to comply with and promote EU values of democracy, human rights, tolerance and justice. This includes treating victims of genocide with utmost respect and dignity.
