Greek FM praises Serbia for catching Mladic

Foreign Minister Dimitris Droutsas on Thursday congratulated Serbian authorities for arresting former Bosnian military leader Ratko Mladic, who has been on the run since 1995 and is wanted by the United Nations war crimes tribunal in The Hague.

?Greece hails this development and congratulates the government of Serbia for its determination and perseverance,? Droutsas said in a statement.

?This is news that fills with satisfaction those who believe and support the need to heal the wounds of history and for justice to be done,? he added.

Mladic, 69, is wanted by the United Nations war crimes tribunal in The Hague over the massacre of some 8,000 Muslims in Srebrenica and the bloody raid of Sarajevo during Bosnia’s 1992-1995 war.
