Serbian Political Scene and the Srebrenica Massacre: Acknowledging the Crime, but not Genocide

Twenty-four years later, the Srebrenica genocide is still a dividing issue in Serbia, very far away from indicating a sincere acceptance of responsibility for the massive liquidation of Srebrenica’s Bosniaks. What makes the Serbian ruling bloc and public figures increasingly nervous is the ever stronger resolve of the West to put an end to the case once and for all so that it should stop causing new rifts and conflicts in the region, and to have all mass killings that were committed acknowledged.

The German ambassador to Serbia, Thomas Schieb, High Representative of the European Union (EU) for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini, European Commissioner for European Neighborhood Policy and Enlargement Negotiations Johannes Hahn, Judge Carmel Agius, president of the International Residual Mechanism for Criminal Tribunals, David McAllister, a German politician chairing the European Parliament (EP) Foreign Affairs Committee, and U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo were among the politicians who used the 24th anniversary of the Srebrenica genocide to appeal that it no longer be denied.
