Mladic's arrest removes biggest obstacle to Serbia's EU integration

Serbia's Prime Minister Mirko Cvetkovic said today that by arresting Ratko Mladic Serbia has demonstrated clear moral credibilty and removed the biggest obstacle in the process of its European integration.

Cvetkovic said that the arrest of Mladic is also proof that all relevant institutions have been seriously doing their job, adding that Serbia has clearly shown that it is committed to justice and respect for the rule of law.

We are committed to personalisation of all crimes and bringing to justice all those suspected of committing war crimes in the former Yugoslavia, said the Serbian Prime Minister.

NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen welcomes the arrest of Ratko Mladic

I strongly welcome the news that Ratko Mladic has been arrested and that his extradition to the Hague is underway. As Bosnian Serb military commander, General Mladic played a key role in some of the darkest episodes of Balkan and European history, including the siege of Sarajevo and the massacre of thousands of Bosnian men and boys in Srebrenica in 1995. Almost sixteen years since his indictment for genocide and other war crimes, his arrest finally offers a chance for justice to be done.

NATO has been a guarantor of security in the Balkans for the best part of two decades and today we have seen an important step towards a Europe that is whole, free and at peace. We remain committed to assisting the whole region on the way to Euro-Atlantic integration.
