"Britain, U.S. should propose honoring of NATO's victims"
The U.S. and Britain will only have the right to speak about the crime in Srebrenica once they propose a day of remembrance of NATO's 1999 bombing of Serbia.Izvor: Beta
This was stated on Friday by the Democratic Party of Serbia (DSS), which was reacting to reports that Great Britain and its partners, the United States among them, are drafting a UN resolution ahead of the 20th anniversary of the crime in Srebrenica that would declare July 11 a day of remembrance.
The DSS noted that a day of remembrance should also be established for the Serb victims killed in Podrinje, Srebrenica, Bratunac, and Skelani during the 1992-95 war in Bosnia-Herzegovina.
"Selective justice is no justice," the party, that is not represented in parliament, stated, and added that "politicized condemnation of crimes is deeply immoral."
"Those who rank the victims and treat the criminals unequally and according to their ethnicity, race, and religion by condemning some and pardoning others deserve the deepest contempt," the statement said.
"Only once they recognize and condemn their own crimes will Britain and the United States have the moral right to condemn the crimes of others," the DSS remarked, and added that Britain should establish a day of remembrance for the victims of the crimes committed in its former colonies in Kenya and India.
The U.S. should propose a day of remembrance of the crimes its army has committed around the world, including in Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan, "of the massacres of My Lai and Fallujah."
"Until they do, the truth remains that they are not opposing crimes, but are merely fighting to maintain their exclusive right to commit crimes with impunity," the party said.
