Ondozi for the UN resolution: Kosovo should learn from Bosnia

Qerim Ondozi

Qerim Ondozi, familiar with the political circumstances in Bosnia and Herzegovina, has said that Kosovo should take this country as an example and its non-surrender to demand responsibility from Serbia for war crimes.
In "Interaktiv" of KTV, Ondozi said that the adoption of the Resolution in the General Assembly of the United Nations Organization that July 11 is recognized internationally as the Day of Remembrance of the Genocide in Srebrenica should give impetus to Kosovo.

According to him, Serbia's approach is the same towards both Kosovo and Bosnia.

"Unfortunately for us, there are no good relations between Kosovo and Bosnia, and no work is being done towards their advancement, although there have been moves by the current government of Kosovo, such as on the issue of recognition of identity cards. Kosovo can learn from Bosnia. Such a diplomatic victory could give Kosovo the impetus to demand responsibility from Serbia for the crimes that took place in Kosovo. I don't know how much pressure will be exerted against us not to do this, since part of the negotiations is not to be vocal about it. But such a step should not be abandoned because crimes never get old. And if here we don't have the right to ask for compensation or something, we shouldn't forget Bosnia's diplomatic victory and do something similar and accuse Serbia of genocide, if not this year, after a year, why not after In 10 years, when will we become a member of the UN, referring to the process that Bosnia and Herzegovina has done, and I hope that they will help each other in this process because we have something to learn from each other", he said.

Ondozi also said that the reactions after the vote by the leader of the Republika Srpska, Milorad Dodik, and the threats for the division of Bosnia did not cause surprise to the Bosnian people. According to him, Dodik's position has weakened due to Western sanctions.

Ondozi estimated that from Thursday's Resolution, Serbia becomes indirectly responsible for the genocide in Srebrenica.

"The performance of (President of Serbia, Aleksandar) Vučić at the UN Assembly hints that this is directed against Serbia, although it cannot be explicitly said, but Serbia will always be responsible for the lack of prevention of genocide. It can be proven that she could have prevented it and she didn't. Here is the biggest responsibility of Serbia as a state and political entity or political unit. Because it did not prevent a genocide that it could have. The resolution would not be able to blame Serbia directly, but in an indirect way", he continued.

Regarding the large number of abstention votes, Ondozi said that this happens because of the increase in polarization in the world, but he estimated that the statements of the representatives who abstained and who said they recognize the genocide are also important.
