China to vote against U.N. resolution recognizing Srebrenica genocide, announces

May 21, 2024 - China has announced its intention to vote against a United Nations resolution that would recognize the massacre in Srebrenica as a genocide, according to Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic. President Vucic emphasized the strong bilateral relationship between Serbia and China, referring to the nations as "brothers" who share a mutual understanding of international law.

In his statement, Vucic stressed Serbia's unwavering support for China's stance on Taiwan, indicating that this support is reciprocated in China's backing on international matters significant to Serbia. This move by China aligns with its longstanding foreign policy principles and its close diplomatic ties with Serbia.

The resolution in question pertains to the events of July 1995, when more than 8,000 Bosniak men and boys were killed in and around the town of Srebrenica by Bosnian Serb forces. The characterization of this atrocity as genocide has been widely accepted by international courts, but remains a contentious issue in international politics.
