We curse the inhumane atrocities of criminals
Prime Minister of the Republic of Turkey Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Wednesday sent condolences to the families of murdered Srebrenica Bosniaks and said that the criminals responsible will eventually answer for their misdeeds.
"The joy and pain of the Srebrenica victims are not forgotten, the hand of justice is slowly reaching the criminals. Let it be clear to everyone that everyone will answer for their crimes, no matter what religion or ethnos they belong to, wherever they are and whatever they do," Prime Minister Erdogan said.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Turkey issued a written statement on Wednesday stating that today is a sad day of remembrance of the brutal killing of more than eight thousand Bosniaks in Srebrenica in 1995.
The statement by the Ministry recalled that the International Court of Justice labeled the atrocities as genocide. They condemned any attempt to deny this fact.
"We once again curse these inhumane atrocities of criminals. We share the pain and grief of the surviving members of Srebrenica families. We condemn any attempt to deny or minimize the genocide in Srebrenica," the statement reads, according to Anatolia.
The Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs believes that it is essential that hostilities end and, on the basis of truth, a shared vision of a stable and peaceful future in BiH and the region comes into being.
"We sincerely believe that the international community has learned the lesion of Srebrenica and that it will do anything so these consequences of ethnic hostility and nationalism never happen again anywhere," the statement reads.
