Slovakia's Foreign Affairs Ministry has welcomed the news that General Ratko Mladic, accused of war crimes in the Bosnian war (1992-95), was apprehended by Serbian officials on Thursday, May 26.

"This move will increase the trustworthiness and quality of co-operation between Serbian authorities and the Hague criminal tribunal [ICTY/International Criminal Tribunal on the former Yugoslavia] vis-a-vis the UN Security Council resolution," Foreign Affairs Ministry spokesperson Petra Greksová said, as quoted by the TASR newswire.

The ministry also praised the efforts of Serbian authorities that had paved the way to such an outcome. "The Foreign Affairs Ministry views the apprehension of Ratko Mladic as evidence of the unequivocal will of Serbia to cement co-operation with the Hague tribunal, and to promote the values that the entire EU is based on," said Greksová.
