RS leader Dodik honors Srebrenica victims
POTOCARI -- President of the Serb Republic (RS) Milorad Dodik on Thursday laid a wreath for Bosniak (Muslim) victims at the Potocari Memorial Center near Srebrenica.
This was Dodik's first visit to the memorial, the Beta news agency reported, adding that his visit was announced at the start of the year and postponed twice.
"The truth is that a crime took place here and I am sorry for all the victims, but it is a fact that those events are very much politicized," said Dodik.
Bosnian Serb forces killed more than 8,000 Bosniaks in Srebrenica in July 1995, during the war in Bosnia-Herzegovina. The International Criminal Court in the Hague ruled this mass war crime as an act of genocide, Beta said.
