Serbian Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic visited the town of Srebrenica, Wednesday, for an investment-development conference organised by local authorities. It was the leader’s first visit to the site since he was peppered with bottles and stones by protesters, and finally forced to flee during a commemoration of the Srebrenica mass killings on July 11.

Vucic was greeted by Srebrenica Mayor Camil Durakovic, President of Republika Srpska Milorad Dodik, Prime Minister of Bosnia and Herzegovina Denis Zvizdic and Chairman of the Presidency of Bosnia and Herzegovina Bakir Izetbegovic. The Balkan officials took a walk through the streets of Srebrenica, where there were no incidents of violence or protest.

Speaking at the conference, Vucic said that Serbia had agreed to donate €10 million ($10.74 million) to the Srebrenica municipality. He went on to state that Serbia wanted to live in peace with Bosnia and the people of Srebrenica. Before he visited Srebrenica, Vucic visited Potocari memorial centre to pay his respects to the dead.
