 BANJALUKA - Republika Srpska (RS) President Milorad Dodik has said that he insists on an international commission being set up to establish the facts about the events in Srebrenica in July 1995 because of what he called a discrepancy between the numbers of those killed and those buried. 

 There is a discrepancy between the claim about approximately 8,000 people killed and the fact that around 4,000 people have been buried after so many years 

- I find it very uncomfortable to speculate about the number but apparently there is some kind of problem in all that, Dodik said.

 This is a painful question, the RS president noted, but added that "if all that had happened has not been presented truthfully, it will remain a subject of speculation," the RTRS reported. 

 To illustrate the statement, he said that reports that Serbs killed 300,000 Muslims in the war led the US and other Western countries to use this figure as a basis for their concepts of a political solution for Bosnia and Herzegovina. 

 The Srebrenica story is incomplete without information on Serb victims in the war, Dodik noted. He said that he disagrees with the Srebrenica crime being qualified as genocide, noting that Turkey's crime against the Armenians in the early 20th century was genocide. Photo Tanjug, Z.
