Serbian President Apologises for War Crimes


“Nikolic made his apology “for all war crimes committed in the name of the Serbian people and Serbia by any individual” during an interview with Bosnian TV station BHT.
“Everything that happened during the 1990s was some form of genocide. But I am on my knees and begging for a pardon in the name of my people for the crime committed in Srebrenica,” Nikolic said in a trailer for the interview broadcast on Thursday.
Nikolic also said he plans to visit Srebrenica in the future.
At the start of his presidency in May last year, Nikolic made several statements related to the 1995 Srebrenica massacres that caused controversy in the region.
He refused to describe the killings of at least 7,000 Bosniaks in the town as genocide, claiming this had not been proved before international courts.”
