On the occasion of the 26th anniversary of the Srebrenica genocide, the Ibn Sina Scientific Research Institute in Sarajevo organized a scientific forum entitled "Srebrenica Genocide and the Role of the International Community".
At a panel discussion held in the amphitheater of the Ibn Sina Institute, eminent university professors and other participants tried to see and explore the role of international institutions before, during and after the genocide and reach a scientific and logical solution to prevent such tragic events around the world.

At the beginning of the tribune, HE, Reza Ghelichkhan, Ambassador of the IR Iran to BiH, addressed the audience, saying on the occasion of the anniversary of the genocide: "Everything that happened during the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina is a crime, and Srebrenica is just a symbol of one of a great crime. Srebrenica is a bitter reality and it is not easy or simple to talk about that bitter reality, but we are forced to talk about how to force the international community to show sensitivity to such issues so that we no longer witness such crimes. "
Ambassador Ghelichkhan then read a message from Iran's foreign minister Zarif, on the occasion of the 26th anniversary of the Srebrenica genocide. After that, the exhibitors at this scientific forum addressed the audience: prof. dr. Džemal Najetović, dean of the Faculty of Law, University of Travnik, doc. Dr. Enis Omerović from the Faculty of Law in Zenica and Amor Mašović, a member of the Board of Directors of the Institute for Missing Persons of BiH.
Prof. Najetovic reminded that even some international officials admitted that, along with Rwanda and Somalia, Srebrenica is the biggest failure of the United Nations. "The UN in modern history, certainly in Europe like nowhere else, with its machinery has not experienced greater humiliation and shame as in Srebrenica and Bosnia and Herzegovina. All the principles of the so-called Western democracy are buried in Srebrenica. All charters and resolutions, starting with the UN charter, have been violated and betrayed. In Srebrenica, the hopes of those who still believed in a new international order were extinguished, "said Prof. Najetovic.
He further pointed out that the states that secured UN troops did not want to engage in the protection of Srebrenica after it was declared a safe zone, and that some even wished for the disappearance of the state of BiH and Bosniaks.
Dr. Omerovic pointed out that the UN experienced a real debacle in the 1990s. "First, they did not prevent the impending genocide in Rwanda in 1994, and then we witnessed the helpless members of UNPROFOR in Bosnia and Herzegovina, which they eventually admitted. In April 1993, safe zones were established by a UN Security Council resolution, first for Srebrenica and later for other cities in BiH - Zepa, Gorazde, Sarajevo, Bihac and Tuzla, so that they had six safe zones in BiH. Everything was just not safe, especially Srebrenica and Zepa ", said Dr. Omerović. "The UN experienced a crash and debacle in Srebrenica, as it failed to protect the civilian population," said Dr. Omerovic, noting that the UN has protected itself from legal responsibility, despite all the omissions it makes in its missions. "They have protected themselves and have absolute immunity from trial and execution of sanctions. No court proceedings can be conducted against the UN on the territory of any member of that organization and no mechanism has been defined for this issue, "said Dr. Omerovic.
Amor Masovic, a member of the Board of Directors of the Institute for Missing Persons of BiH, said: "What they are asking us to do today is to come to terms with the current situation when it comes to war and to forget what happened to us reconciles with any, even minimal, verdict handed down by the Hague Tribunal. "We have verdicts against Mladic and Karadzic, but what about the other war criminals?" Masovic pointed out.
He said that the international community, after the genocide in Srebrenica, did not face the perpetrators of the crime and its main perpetrators in the right and satisfactory way.
This scientific forum brought a clear and unequivocal conclusion that the international community has an important role in the genocide in Srebrenica, and the UN should be held accountable before the public and the families of the victims for their inability to implement the resolutions issued by this organization.
