Croatia unhappy with UN court's rejection of genocide claim

AFP , Tuesday 3 Feb 2015

Croatian Prime Minister Zoran Milanovic voiced dismay Tuesday after the UN's top court rejected its genocide claim against Serbia in over the 1990s war.

"We are not satisfied with the court's ruling, but we accept it in a civilised manner," Milanovic told reporters, adding that the International Court of Justice's verdict was final.

The IJC dismissed Croatia's claim that Serb forces committed genocide during the country's 1991-1995 war of independence and issued a similar ruling on a counter-claim by Belgrade over a Croatian counter-offensive that forced 200,000 Serbs to flee.
