Russia has expressed understanding for Serbia’s position and believes that the resolution would not contribute to reconciliation, but would rather lead to further inflammation of the nationalist sentiment and tensions in the region, reads a statement issued by the government’s press office.

Vucic said Serbia has demonstrated a clear and unambiguous stance on the text of the draft resolution, adding that such a resolution has not been brought on the fifth, tenth or even 15th anniversary of the events in Srebrenica, and therefore its political motivation leads to further destabilization of overall situation in the Western Balkans.

The resolution is a proposal by the British government, on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of war crimes in Srebrenica, eastern Bosnia-Herzegovina, and it should be tabled at the UN Security Council.
