SREBRENICA – Serbia will on Monday transfer EUR 2 million to the municipality of Srebrenica for development of infrastructure, and has earmarked another EUR 3 million for future joint projects, Serbia’s Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic said on Wednesday.
Addressing an investment-development conference titled “Srebrenica 2015”, Vucic described this donation as an investment in the future.
“Serbia looks to the future and wants the best possible relations with Bosniaks – to build up the best future, to spend the next hundred years in peace, to ensure that we all live better. This is our small contribution to the shared future,” Vucic said.
He added that in 2015, Serbia had achieved good results and would like to set up a joint team with Republika Srpska and Bosnia-Herzegovina that would work on important projects.
Speaking further, Vucic said that Serbia would show that, apart from having respect for the past and understanding everything what had happened, it looked to the shared future with great optimism.
The Serbian prime minister underlined that he had also made clear his stance on the past events in that municipality by paying respects to the innocent Srebrenica victims at the Potocari Memorial Center on Wednesday.
Vucic arrived in Srebrenica early on Wednesday so as to take part in an investment development conference titled “Srebrenica 2015”.
This is Vucic’s second visit to Srebrenica, despite the fact that the investigation is yet to be completed into the July 11 attack on the Serbian prime minister and delegation.
