The adoption of the UN resolution on the genocide of Srebrenica is a "diplomatic fiasco" for the West, it is "a national hot topic and the best thing that can happen to President Aleksandar Vucic at this moment", it was also a "forced act of a divided international community", EU media wrote about the recently adopted Resolution.

The German newspaper „Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung“ believes that on the domestic front, considering that on June 2, elections will be held in Serbia, Vucic is responsible for the lost vote in the UN and the anger he caused against Germany.

The French daily „Mond“ assessed that the adoption of the Resolution in the UN General Assembly on the International Day of Remembrance and Commemoration of the Srebrenica Genocide in 1995 „was a forced act of a divided international community because the Resolution vote was far from unanimous.“

„Le Mond“ points out that „so far this was the only resolution, after those on the genocide in Rwanda in 2003 and the Holocaust in 2005, the majority of the UN members did not accept that, although it did not even mention any responsibility of Serbia“.

The German portal „Deutsche Vele“ reports the analysis of the Swiss radio-television SRF that the resolution was adopted „only after a difficult struggle and represents a diplomatic fiasco“.

SRF states that 19 countries voted against that resolution, including Serbia, Russia, China and Hungary, while 68 countries abstained from voting. „It is not a convincing result. It is a slap in the face for the West, which mostly supported the decision“ – the Swiss Radio and Television wrote.

„The debate that took place for weeks in front of and behind the scenes of the UN was anything but conciliatory,“ the Swiss SRF said. „Many state delegations accused the initiators of not negotiating transparently and not being persistent enough in seeking consensus“.

In the analysis, it is noted that the timing of the vote for the Resolution was „extremely unfortunate,“ asking: „Why are we now dealing with the genocide that happened 29 years ago, while war crimes are being committed in Gaza?“

The SRF concluded that all this „once again shows how deep the divisions are in the UN and how little will there is to try to overcome them“.
