'Srebrenica genocide began as Europe failed to uphold duties'

TEHRAN, Jul. 11 (MNA) – Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said that Srebrenica genocide began as Europe failed to uphold its basic duties.

In a tweet on Sat., Zarif wrote, “25 yrs ago today, #Srebrenica Genocide began as Europe failed to uphold its basic duties. Quarter of a century later, Europe is plagued by same ineptitude.”

“The failure of the @UN to take any action at the time—to forever haunt the world body—should remain a lesson for the present,” Zarif added while also posting the following photos and the snapshot of a news piece.
