Entry Title Date
Condemning Violations Of International Law By The Government Of Syria March 14, 2016
Christopher Smith, R-NJ
"As I said, in the early 1990s, the Russians knew that the Yugoslav court was designed to hold all transgressors liable, whether they be Bosnian or Croats and not just Serbians and, again, they didn’t veto that particular court as it was established."
Comprehensive Addiction And Recovery Act Of 2015 March 9, 2016
Daniel Coats, R-IN
"As difficult as this task sounds—and surely it is—it has been done before. There is a precedent here. The manner in which the international community eventually came to deal successfully with the Bosnian war in the 1990s gives us a useful template for how we can approach the safe-area task in Syria. That template, derived from our Bosnia experience, includes two essential components: the U.N. Security Council and NATO, North Atlantic Treaty Organization."
Serbia Steps Up At A Critical Time December 10, 2015
Ted Poe, R-TX
"Mr. Speaker, Serbia’s recent donation of $5.4 million to the Bosnian town of Srebrenica, where thousands of Muslims were killed in the Yugoslav Wars, is a clear sign that the Serbian Government wants to do what they can to improve relationships with countries in the region. Mending these relationships is especially important as the Balkans are on the front lines of the refugee crisis. As of the beginning of November, the same month that President Vucic announced this large donation, over 300,000 refugees had flowed through the country since the beginning of the year. Most refugees are fleeing Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan and travelling to Europe to seek asylum. Serbia is doing their part to process and protect these people. In October alone, 180,307 refugees were processed compared to 51,048 in September because of Serbia’s commitment to improving capacity."
Marking 20 Years Since The Signing Of The Dayton Agreement November 19, 2015
Christopher Smith, R-NJ
"Just last month I met with a group of young Bosniaks belonging to Voices of the Bosnian Genocide. It was so moving to meet with these young people—many of them were from Srebrenica—and to learn how many of them had taken up work or study that sought to bring some good out of the horrors of 1995. Many studied human rights law, or conflict resolution, or medicine."
Introducing A Resolution Recommending The Designation Of A Presidential Special Envoy To The Balkans October 9, 2015
Janice Hahn, D-CA
"While the U.S. has urged the Bosnian government to initiate needed revisions themselves, we have witnessed this relatively new nation state, which maintains great political and economic potential, actually fall back into occasional violent patterns as witnessed in February "
