‘Your pain is our pain’
Speaking at the ceremony, Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Numan Kurtulmus told mourners Turkey would continue to ensure the genocide committed against Bosniaks in 1995 would not be forgotten.
“We see Bosnia and Herzegovina as part of us. Anywhere in Bosnia — in Sarajevo, in Srebrenica, in any other city — you know that if something happens to you, we feel your pain in Bursa, Istanbul, Ankara … All your pain is our pain,” he said.
Recalling the words of former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan that Srebrenica was one of the darkest stains in the history of the United Nations, Kurtulmus said it was a good-but-insufficient statement because Srebrenica remained one of the darkest spots in the history of humanity.
“How will we clean this stain? By bringing all criminals to justice … This means that we will support everything that is done with that goal in mind.
“We will make our contribution so that what happened in Srebrenica will never happen again,” said Kurtulmus.
