Albanian parliament rejects Srebrenica resolution while President Ilir Meta considers it extremely disappointing

TIRANA, May 12 – President Ilir Meta described the vote against of the majority on the draft resolution submitted to the Albanian Parliament for the recognition and condemnation of the genocide of Serbs of Bosnia and Herzegovina in Srebrenica in July 1995 as extremely disappointing on Thursday.

The President expressed his deep regret that deputies of the Albanian Parliament distort undeservedly and do not represent the will of the Albanian citizens, who have shown by their actions that they are against ethnic cleansing, and in defense of freedom and human dignity.

Below the full comment of President:

“It is extremely disappointing the vote AGAINST by the majority on the draft resolution submitted to the Albanian Assembly for the recognition and condemnation of the genocide of the Serbs of Bosnia and Herzegovina in Srebrenica in July 1995.

In the conditions of the unprovoked and unjustifiable Russian aggression against Ukraine, and when there are increased efforts to deny the Serbian genocide in Srebrenica and to glorify the war criminals

in our region, today’s session of the Albanian Assembly should have expressed solemnly and with full determination the inalienable will of the Albanian people against the barbaric genocide, which took the lives of 8372 people in Srebrenica.

I regret very deeply that MPs of the Albanian Assembly distort undeservedly and do not represent the will of the Albanian citizens, who have shown by their actions that they are against ethnic cleansing, and in defense of freedom and human dignity.”
