Iran Remembers Srebrenica

The Islamic Republic of Iran has expressed solidarity with the people of Bosnia and the families of the victims of the Srebrenica genocide of 1995.

Iran's Foreign Ministry has issued a statement in which it described the July 1995 massacre of thousands of Bosnian Muslims in the presence of UN peacekeepers in the Srebrenica safe zone as a tragedy, and offered condolences to the bereaved families of Srebrenica, IRNA reported on Monday.

It also urged all relevant international bodies to take every action necessary to prevent a recurrence of such incidents.

The statement condemned the silence and inaction of certain Western countries and international bodies at the time the atrocities occurred.

More than 600 newly-identified victims of Srebrenica massacre by Serb forces were laid to rest during a service on Monday, which was the 16th anniversary of the massacre.

The bodies were recovered from mass graves over the past year and identified by means of DNA tests.

The dead were among more than 8,000 Muslim men and boys from the eastern enclave that were killed by Bosnian Serbs.

They were systematically killed by Serb forces in the climax to the 1992-1995 Bosnian war.

The conflict, involving Serbs, Croatians, and Bosnians, eventually left at least 100,000 people, mostly Bosnian Muslims, dead.
