O Canada!


Canadian Prime Minister Vetoes Srebrenica Resolution

The Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper made a right decision when he vetoed the parliaments’ initiative to mark July 11 as a “day of remembrance of the victims of Srebrenica genocide”, the president of the non-governmental organization “Historic Project Srebrenica” Stefan Karganovic stated.

“The Prime Minister Harper showed the courage to resist the political pressures, which is rarely seen in the today’s world. Besides his personal integrity, his decision also shows the West is becoming tired of the requests to follow the agenda of the one aggressive and well organized interest group in Bosnia and Herzegovina.”

The group in question uses human tragedy in Srebrenica during the Bosnian war from 1992 to 1995 presenting its losses in a false way, and undermine the suffering and losses of others, Karganovic said.

The Canadian Prime Minister has put veto on the resolution on Srebrenica in the Canadian parliament. The Congress of North American Bosniaks said yesterday Harper replaced the word “Bosniaks” with “the Bosnian people who were allegedly the subject of genocide”, lowered the number of victims, and replaced the term “genocide” with “the mass killing”.

The resolution on Srebrenica was initiated by the Congress of North American Bosniaks, and sponsored by the NDP MP Brian Masse.
