Vucic after the vote on the resolution for Srebrenica: "I am proud of Serbia"

Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic said that he is proud of his country and the Serbs in neighboring countries. His statement comes after the United Nations approved the resolution commemorating the genocide in Srebrenica.

The Serbian president condemned the resolution, saying it "humiliates" Serbia and further divides the region.

Vucic also pointed out that the combined abstentions and "against" votes - 87 - were more than the 84 "for" votes.

“You see, this is a big surprise to many who were inside the hall, even though I told them, you saw at the beginning what divisions this would cause. In the end, 87 of those present in the hall did not vote for the resolution, 84 voted for it. In every national parliament that proposal will have to fail. It is also worth noting that 22 countries skipped the meeting and did not vote, some allegedly because of the dispute over the commemoration, Vucic said.

The resolution designates July 11 as the "International Day of Remembrance and Commemoration of the 1995 Srebrenica Genocide," to be observed annually beginning this year.

The resolution, sponsored by Germany and Rwanda, does not mention the Serbs as the culprits.

Both Serbia and the Bosnian Serbs have denied that genocide took place in Srebrenica, although there are two UN court rulings on it.
