Prime Minister Andrej Plenković announced on Twitter on Monday that the genocide in Srebrenica was a "defeat of humanity" and expressed his respect for the victims and his condolences to their families.

“27 years have passed since the #Srebrenica genocide, which represents the defeat of humanity. We remember with reverence the more than 8,000 Bosniak men, boys and civilians killed in Srebrenica. We deeply sympathize with their families and loved ones,” Prime Minister Andrej Plenković wrote on Twitter.

It is the anniversary of the genocide in Srebrenica, which was committed against Bosniaks from that area in 1995 by members of the Bosnian Serb army and police.

It is estimated that more than eight thousand Bosniak men and boys were killed during the ten days of July, and the search for the remains of about a thousand of them is still ongoing.

Former Bosnian Serb political and military leaders Radovan Karadžić and Ratko Mladić were sentenced to life imprisonment for their responsibility for committing the genocide in Srebrenica.
