Bosnia's Presidency Chairman: News agency misreported my statement on Croatia Izvor: FENA

Bosnia’s Presidency Chairman Zeljko Komsic never told UN Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide Adam Dieng that Croatia and its government deny the WWII genocide the Nazi-aligned Independent State of Croatia (NDH) committed against Serbs, the Roma and Jews, but that some individuals in Croatia do, Komsic’s office said, arguing that the HINA news agency misreported.

The news agency reported on a meeting between Komsic and Dieng held in New York on Saturday.

Komsic equated the Srebrenica genocide denial in Bosnia’s Serb-majority region with the "the crime of genocide against Serbs, Roma and Jews" committed during WWII under the Nazi-aligned NDH (Independent State of Croatia), saying it "is denied through the public and political activity of some individuals."

“With this in mind, the Office of the Chairman of the Presidency of Bosnia and Herzegovina believes the HINA news agency should apologise to the citizens of the Republic of Croatia because of the accusation they tried to attribute to the Chairman of Bosnia’s Presidency, Zeljko Komsic,” the press release said.

The release also criticised Croatia’s President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic, who said Komsic is using “anti-Croatian rhetoric.”

The reaction was a result of the “continuous practice of propaganda” by the HINA news agency which Grabar-Kitarovic is expressing through “diplomatic speech,” Komsic's Office said, adding that this it “part of the special propaganda activities which are being conducted not only against Bosnia’s Presidency Chairman but also against Bosnia and Herzegovina.”
