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

The General Assembly of the United Nations will vote on the proposed resolution on Srebrenica on May 23, the U.N. announced via its website on May 15.

Proposing the institution of an International Day of Remembrance of the Victims of the Srebrenica Genocide, the draft resolution has been put on the agenda of the Assembly’s 82nd plenary session, among topics titled “Culture of Peace.”

The resolution – which condemns denying the genocide along with glorifying war criminals – has been sponsored by some thirty countries, including the members of the Quint and all former Yugoslav republics except Montenegro, although the latter has announced its support.

After two postponements, the resolution was supposed to be up for vote on May 15, but the date has once again been moved, this time for a week.

Meanwhile, Serbia’s diplomatic mission will continue attempting to thwart the resolution for labelling the Srebrenica war crime a genocide.

Resolutions passed by the U.N. General Assembly are not binding, but they do carry political weight and reflect the stance of its member states.
