He responded on Saturday to the appeal from the Congress of North American Bosniaks and the Advisory Council for Bosnia-Herzegovina sent to U.S. Ambassador to the UN Susan Rice by saying it was obvious there those who did not want truth to be revealed were becoming increasingly nervous ahead of the debate on April 10.

The Bosniak associations from North America asked Rice on Saturday to censor Jeremić urgently and call off the UN debate on the Hague Tribunal scheduled for April 10.

“There is obviously growing nervousness in those who do not like the fact that the truth will be presented on the UN stage,” Jeremić pointed out.

“The preparations for the debate on international criminal judiciary set for April 10 are in the final stages,” he noted, adding that pressure was being ignored.

“The morning part of the debate will allow UN members to present their national views, including Bosnia-Herzegovina,” the UNGA president told Tanjug.

The two Bosniak associations told Rice that Jeremić had bad intentions towards the Hague Tribunal and advocated the “Serbian nationalist program”.

The associations expressed concern over the coming debate, which focuses on the work of the Hague Tribunal, Turkish Anadolu news agency has reported.
