The UN adopted the resolution on the genocide in Srebrenica

The UN General Assembly adopted a resolution declaring July 11 as the International Day of Remembrance of the Srebrenica Genocide.

84 voted for the Resolution on the Srebrenica genocide, 19 were against, and 68 abstained.

Among the countries that voted "FOR" is Macedonia, which was also a co-sponsor of the same, and the decision to do so was made by the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Bujar Osmani.

The resolution was proposed by countries that have a difficult historical experience with it – Germany and Rwanda.

The text was subsequently sponsored by another 34 countries, including all former Yugoslav republics except Serbia and Montenegro.

The UN General Assembly adopted the Resolution establishing an "International Day of Remembrance and Commemoration of the Genocide Committed in Srebrenica in 1995", referring to the judgments of the International Court of Justice and the International Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia, and emphasizing that criminal responsibility for genocide is individual.

What is written in the final draft of the text, why is Serbia against it, how will the vote be taken and who will raise their hand - what is in the text of the resolution?
