Kosovar Prime Minister Albin Kurti stated that there is still no justice and peace in Srebrenica and Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Ceremonies were held to commemorate the 28th anniversary of the genocide in Srebrenica in Kosovo, which has been described as Europe’s largest human tragedy after World War II.
Kosovar Prime Minister Corti, Deputy Prime Minister for Minorities and Human Rights Emilija Rexipe, ministers, representatives of international institutions and organizations working in the country and guests from Bosnia and Herzegovina attended the ceremony, which was held at the Institute of History in the capital, Pristina.
The ceremony began with a minute of silence and a film screening on the Srebrenica genocide.
In his Bosnian speech at the ceremony, Kurti criticized politicians in the region who denied the genocide in Bosnia and Herzegovina and said that there is still no justice and peace in Srebrenica and Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Noting that Serbia did not punish Srebrenica even a quarter of a century after the genocide, Kurti said: “We always remember that the criminals never received the punishment they deserved and we suffer for it. While Serbia was responsible for not stopping the genocide, it has not been held accountable.” never responsible for a brutal genocide.” Use phrases.
Kurti also added that not only some Bosnian Serbs are responsible for the Srebrenica massacre, but Serbia as a country is responsible.
The deputy of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Samsdin Mehmedovich, who attended the ceremony, confirmed that the people of Kosovo, as well as the Bosnians, face covering up and belittling the crimes committed against them. He said.
What happened in Srebrenica?
After the occupation of Srebrenica by Serb forces led by Ratko Mladić on 11 July 1995, Bosniak civilians who had taken refuge with Dutch soldiers inside the UN were handed over to the Serbs.
Allowing women and children access to the area controlled by Bosniak soldiers, the Serbs massacred no fewer than 8,372 Bosniak men in forest areas, factories, and warehouses. The Bosnian dead were buried in mass graves.
After the war, the victims whose bodies were found were buried in mass graves in an effort to find the missing in a ceremony held at the Potocari Memorial Cemetery on 11 July each year after their identification.
