Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu posted a tweet on the anniversary of the Srebrenica genocide, the second largest massacre in Europe after WWII, saying his country will never forget and never will never forget this massacre.
Cavusoglu wrote on Twitter: “On the occasion of the 26th anniversary of the Srebrenica genocide, the black spot on the history of mankind, I pray for the mercy of all those who fell martyred during this massacre”, saying part of his compassion with “the families of the victims and our Bosnian brothers”.
The Turkish minister posted a photo of the massacre with the caption: “The Srebrenica genocide … We have not forgotten and we will never allow anyone to forget”.
Serbian forces, under the command of General Ratko Mladic, raided Srebrenica on July 11, 1995, after the town was declared a “safe zone” by the United Nations.
More than 8,000 Bosnians, aged between 7 and 70, had been slaughtered as Dutch peacekeepers assigned to the area delivered tens of thousands of Bosnians to Serb forces.
