Nikolic Reaffirms Serbia's Denial of Srebrenica Genocide
The Srebrenica Massacre does not constitute a genocide and Serbia as a state is moreover not responsible for it, stated Serbian President Tomislav Nikolic.
In a statement published by the Italian daily Corriere della Sera, Nikolic has reaffirmed Serbia's official position on the atrocity.
"There has been no genocide in Srebrenica. Specific individuals from the Serbian people are to bear the guilt for what happened there," said the Serbian President.
"The Serbian Parliament has condemned this crime, but it did not use the word 'genocide'," recalled Nikolic.
According to him, "not a single Serbian" recognizes that a genocide happened in Srebrenica in 1995.
He added that Bosnian Serb leaders Radovan Karadzic and Gen Ratko Mladic, who are currently tried at the Hague, are to be considered innocent before being found otherwise.
"The EU should not be putting any new conditions for Serbia's accession, including the recognition of Kosovo," stated Nikolic.
He explained that should that happen, his country is ready to give up EU membership as a goal.
On the other hand, the Serbian President reaffirmed his readiness for dialogue with Kosovo's leaders in the future.

To compare:(1)"Not a genocide? Probably these thousands of civilians, men, women and children found in mass graves were the victims of... suicide?" (author: Philippe [who saw everything by his proper eyes?]).
(2)“2,000 is approximately the number of bodies Hague investigators were able to find up to this day. To that number Muslim side added several hundred Muslim fighters, most of whom came from abroad, who were killed in battle few years before the fall of Srebrenica, in Han Pijesak and Konjevi? Polje,” (author: Alex Dorin [who didn't see but risked to conduct the independent investigation]) http://dijaspora.wordpress.com/2009/06/16/alexander-dorin-%E2%80%9Csrebrenica-massacre%E2%80%9D-is-a-western-myth/
And how many of those-found by Hague-2,000 victims were "men, women and children"? Still "genocide", Philippe knows for sure. The only question remains: what about thouzands of killed by the cut-throat Oric Serbs (out of whom 3,262 have been identified)? Not genocide? Hague & Philippe: both great.
Nikolic confirmed his opinion, that the Serbian people should not take collective responsibility for some events in Bosnia. Serbia's previous government already assumed responsibility. Napolitano giving full out support for Serbia didn't really show any objections to that.
