Serbian and Croatian presidents Boris Tadić and Ivo Josipović have placed wreaths for Croat victims in Ovčara, near Vukovar. The two are later expected to visit a memorial for Serb civilians killed in the town of Paulin Dvor. Both towns saw executions of prisoners and civilians during the war in 1991.
“I am here to once again offer words of apology, to express regret and create a possibility for Serbs and Croats, Serbia and Croatia, to turn a new page of history,” said Tadić at Ovčara.
According to him, by admitting to crimes, apologizing and expressing regret, possibilities are created for reconciliation.
