Today we commemorate twenty-six years since the genocide in Srebrenica. The worst act of mass killing in Europe since the second World War.
Today is a solemn day. A day to remember. Today we pay our respects to the families and the loved ones of the victims. We are united in our sorrow. But also in our hope to never see such atrocities in Europe again.
That is exactly what our European Union stands for. Shared values. Democratic principles. Freedoms. Reconciliation. And building lasting peace on our continent.And building a better future for all our children. And doing it together.
The European Union stands by you, Bosnia and Herzegovina. You can always count on our support and on our friendship.
