Srebrenica is not a place of reconciliation

Serbia's Prime minister Alexandar Vučić was attacked and chased from a ceremony commemorating the 20th anniversary of the Srebrenica massacre by an angry mob on Saturday. Srebrenica can never be a place of peace, the liberal business daily Il Sole 24 Ore writes with regret: "Twenty years on Srebrenica is not a place of reconciliation. It is a place of never-assuaged anger, of omissions and European disinterest vis-à-vis a former Yugoslavia that, were it not for the US and Nato intervention, would have been abandoned to its fate. Europe went down twenty years ago in the Balkans, in the currents of the Drina. … And it is still paying a high price today for its indifference, because the Balkans remains a region with an uncertain future."

Italy approves free trade for EU and South Korea

The EU foreign ministers agreed on a free trade agreement with South Korea at the EU summit on Thursday. As of July 1, 2011, 98 percent of the customs duties between the two parties will be waived. Italy, which had long opposed the move, finally gave its approval. The business paper Il Sole 24 Ore analyses the reasons for this change of heart: "The meeting between Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi and South Korean President Lee Myung-bak at the World Political Forum in Yaroslavl on September 10 is said to have paved the way for the free trade agreement ... . Berlusconi reportedly said that the 'national reservations' ... were only prompted by concern about protecting sensitive areas of Italian production, above all the car and textile industries. This conversation, together with a broad diplomatic offensive launched by certain European heads of governments, first and foremost British Prime Minister David Cameron. ... made the conclusion of yesterday's agreement ... possible. It is the first agreement with a non-EU member state since the signing of the Treaty of Lisbon."
