A few weeks ahead of the closing of the ICTY, France pays tribute to its critical work in promoting reconciliation between the countries in the region. As the Council of Ministers of the European Union has reaffirmed on several occasions, all perpetrators of war crimes in the Western Balkans must be prosecuted. We are committed to the fight against impunity and to an independent and impartial justice system everywhere and call on all states to fully cooperate with the international criminal tribunals.
