BELGRADE – The former Serbian president and leader of the Social Democratic Party (SDS) Boris Tadic said Tuesday that Serbia’s reaction to the draft resolution on Srebrenica has come too late.


There were indications several months ago of a document being prepared that could weaken the international position of Serbia, Tadic said.

The draft resolution prepared by Great Britain is not in itself directed against Serbia, but it is always possible for certain parts of the text to be used against the interests of Serbia in the future, he pointed out.

“The nature of the resolution on Srebrenica is such that it can redefine the position of Serbia and create more difficult circumstances for the country in an international context,“ Tadic warned.

He called on the government of Serbia to try to influence the content and lessen the potential effects of the resolution through diplomatic activities. The resolution is to be discussed by the UN Security Council on July 7, four days before the 20th anniversary of the crime in Srebrenica.
