Serbian lawmakers are debating a declaration condemning the 1995 massacre in Srebrenica, in a bid to break away from its warmongering past as the country seeks EU membership.

Serbia's pro-Western authorities say the declaration is important for regional reconciliation and the country's EU future.

But nationalists have rejected it, insisting that the document should also condemn Serb victims of the 1990s conflict.

The resolution condemns the killing of more than 7,000 Muslim boys and men, expresses sympathy for victims and apologizes for not doing enough to prevent the massacre.

Muslim leaders in Serbia have criticized the resolution because it does not state that the massacre was genocide. The lawmakers are expected to vote later Tuesday.
