Macedonian parliament approves declaration on Srebrenica
Parliament approved a declaration Thursday (February 4th) in support of a European Parliament (EP) resolution condemning crimes committed in Srebrenica in 1995. According to the document, Macedonia will commemorate July 11th as a day of remembrance for the nearly 8,000 Srebrenica victims. Macedonian lawmakers stressed that full co-operation with The Hague war crimes tribunal is a precondition for the EU integration of Western Balkan countries. The EP passed its resolution just over a year ago.
