Statement by the HR/VP Federica Mogherini on the attack on the Prime Minister Aleksandar Vučić in Srebrenica

The fact that Prime Minister of Serbia Aleksandar Vučić, who took the historical decision to come to the 20th anniversary commemoration of the genocide at Srebrenica, was forced to leave today goes against the spirit of this day of remembrance.

It shows that we all need to redouble our efforts to overcome hatred and pursue reconciliation across the whole Western Balkans region and beyond.

Today is a day for reconciliation, dignity and respect. The EU will continue to support efforts in this direction. 

We expect a full investigation into this incident by the Bosnia and Herzegovina authorities.
