Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic said in Belgrade on March 29 that a resolution on the genocide in Srebrenica would appear on the agenda of the United Nations General Assembly late in April, adding that demands for the dissolution of Republika Srpska and for Belgrade to pay war damages would ensue.

Vucic said the resolution would most likely be on the agenda on April 27, explaining that there were two reasons for this. "One is to punish the Serb people for freedom-loving, independent policies and to exert additional pressure with regard to the issue of Kosovo and Metohija and foreign-policy alignment. The other is to show Muslims across the world that there are Muslims that they support, on account of the attitudes toward the Palestinians and others," Vucic said.

He said Western countries were in a "hurry" to pass the resolution "because of elections in the U.S. and developments in Ukraine and the Gaza Strip." He said Serbia had not abandoned its European path and had countless reasons to stay on it, but that its position would be "increasingly difficult and more complicated."

Elmedin Konakovic, foreign minister of Bosnia and Herzegovina, has said that Vucic, if he wants what is good for Serbia and Serbs in the region, should support the adoption of the United Nations resolution on the genocide in Srebrenica as it would contribute to clearing the Serb people of collective responsibility. Konakovic said Vucic "doesn't understand that really the entire world is doing this for the sake of human, civilizational values."
