The debate, which began with a proposal to hold a public meeting by the opposition on recognizing the genocide in Srebrenica in the Grand National Assembly of Turkey, caused the BiH press to mislead about Turkey.
Some media outlets known for their anti-Turkish broadcasts covered ridiculous news like Turkey’s refusal to recognize the Srebrenica genocide and the shooting of Bosniaks in the back. In addition to the Turkish institutions in Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Bosnians responded to the news that distorted Turkey’s approach to the issue.
Member of the Presidency Council of Bosnia and Herzegovina Željko Komcic stated that all parties in the Grand National Assembly of Turkey accepted a declaration and condemned the genocide in Srebrenica and that the rejected motion consisted of a motion put forward by the opposition in parallel. Komsic said: “There is no rejection of a law and no agenda item here. Parliament rejected it because all sides have already taken a position on the Srebrenica genocide. The source, which is the starting point for all this, is really interesting.”
Emir Soljacic, Director of the Srebrenica Memorial Centre, said: “Without Turkey and the Turkish government, the Srebrenica Memorial Center would be a pile of rubbish. Turkey’s aid when we need it most is measured in millions of euros. I am always grateful to Turkey.
The Turkish Embassy in Sarajevo issued a statement on the matter and drew attention to the disinformation in Bosnia and Herzegovina aimed at misleading the public. The statement emphasized that all institutions in Turkey recognize the genocide in Srebrenica, and also noted that the day before, all parties in the Grand National Assembly of Turkey issued a declaration recognizing the genocide in Srebrenica.
Sadik Babur Ceren, Turkey’s ambassador to Sarajevo, also stated that Turkey recognizes the genocide in Srebrenica with all its institutions and that there is no need for a separate law on genocide, which was ruled as genocide by a decision of an international court, during the meeting.
