Hello, I am Julie Candler with the BBC news. Russia has vetoed a UN resolution that wouldve condemned the Srebrenica massacre twenty years ago as an act of genocide. The killing of 8,000 Muslim men and boys by Bosnian Serb troops in the town was the worst massacre in Europe since the WWII. The American ambassador to the UN Samantha Power said the reconciliation in the region would only be possible by acknowledging the genocide. “Only by recognizing this genocide, the gravity of this genocide, and how we outside failed to prevent it, will we be able to help the region move beyond such a dark part of its history, help it walk toward greater reconciliation which we all seek, and live up to the promise of preventing genocide in our time.”

resolution :决议

俄罗斯否决联合国谴责20年前斯雷布雷尼察大屠杀为“种族灭绝”事件的决议。此次大屠杀导致8000多名穆斯林男子被波斯尼亚塞族部队杀死,这是二战以后欧洲历史上最严重的屠杀事件。美国驻联合国大使萨曼莎·鲍尔表示说该地区局势可能吸取种族灭绝的教训得到和解。她说“我们应该意识到这次种族灭绝的恶劣影响,并且反省外部力量没有及时阻止,我们有能力帮助该地区走出这段黑暗的历史,各方都在寻求帮助他们达成和解,至少在我们当前生活的时代不再发生类似的种族灭绝惨案”
