The US Embassy has reacted to the declaration of the Serbian President, Alexandar Vucic, who denied the existence of the Recak massacre, considering it “fiction”.
The embassy said that the provocative rhetoric and history reviews regarding the events of 1999 are unacceptable.
The incendiary rhetoric and historical revisionism we have seen recently with regard to the events of 1999 are unacceptable. We also caution against selective prosecution of speech on the basis of political orientation or community. Freedom of speech has long been a bedrock principle of democracy. The events of this week pose another reminder of how important it is for Kosovo and Serbia to return to the table and refocus their energies on the future by normalizing relations.
