Vucic's associate asks that Serbia cut communication with Bosniak officials over Srebrenica

The vice president of the ruling Serb People's Party (SNS), Marko Djuric, on Wednesday called on party chief and Serbian Prime Minister Designate Aleksandar Vucic to immediately cut all communication with Bosniak politicians because they are asking Serbia to admit that genocide had been committed against Bosniaks in Srebrenica, stressing they did not want peace and cooperation with Serbia.

Djuric requested that communication be cut with Srebrenica municipal head Camil Durakovic and the Chairman of the Bosnian collective Presidency, Bakir Izetbegovic, saying that the authorities in Sarajevo were behind Durakovic's behavior, and that his statement represented "chauvinist violence", Radio Television Serbia reported.

Commenting on Durakovic message that the arrival of officials from Serbia at the Srebrenica genocide victims commemoration would have no meaning until Serbia admitted the character and the proportion of the crime committed against Bosniaks in July 1995 when the Bosnian Serb army killed approximately 8,000 Bosniaks, Djuric said that "the hand of friendship that Vucic has offered is an opportunity for them to spit on it, to insult the Serb people and to call for the continuation of the war through other means."

"This is why there cannot and must not be any talk with people like Izetbegovic and Durakovic," Djuric said announcing eh would request an urgent session of the SNS presidency to discuss this issue.

Vucic did not yet voice his opinion about it.
