"International community must assume responsibility to prevent the recurrence of such a grave crime against humanity." Presidency’s Communications Director Prof. Fahrettin Altun said regarding Srebrenica Genocide.
Altun posted the following on his Twitter account to mark the 24th anniversary of the genocide in Srebrenica, eastern Bosnia-Herzegovina in 1995:
"Srebrenica genocide, which unfolded before the eyes of the world and is one of the most disgraceful tragedies in history, reminds humanity the gruesome face of genocide once again. On the 24th anniversary of the massacre, we commemorate the august martyrs with mercy and wish patience to our Bosnian brothers. In order to prevent the recurrence of such a grave crime against humanity, international community should assume its responsibility. Turkey will be the follower of the atrocities suffered by the people of Bosnia and continue to support them in their rightful case."
