ISLAMABAD: Mr. Emin Cohodarevic Ambassador Embassy of Bosnia and Herzegovina has said  he was pleased to present the film “Qou vadis, Aida?”, on the occasion the 32nd anniversary of Independence Day of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The film is not only a cinematic masterpiece, but a painful reminder of the Srebrenica genocide, the worst atrocity on European soil since World War II.

A large number of guests hailing from various walks of life attended the reception.

The ambassador said, it was an undeniable reality that the relations between Bosnia and Herzegovina and Islamic Republic of Pakistan are special: alongside the enduring link of the permanent support that Pakistan give to Bosnia and Herzegovina on its path to preserve freedom and democracy.

‘’Our relations have an out of ordinary dynamic, they permanently develop and diversify. There no single field, either political, defense, economical, cultural or social one, where we not able to give positive examples and good practices’.

He said he was confident that the friendship between the people of the two countries and bilateral relations between  two governments will continue to flourish and achieve new heights.   

While giving a highlight of the film, the ambassador said, it was not coincidence that we chose this moment to screen    “Quo vadis, Aida?”, as we mark our 32nd  year of independence, recognizing all of the stories, tragic and heroic, personal and collective, well-known and yet-to-be-told, that are part of my country′s history already.

‘Aida′s drama and her emotions are the heart of the story. I would like you to take away the feelings and questions the film raises. How many things would have been different if we had more empathy and solidarity? Did this tragedy have to have such a terrible outcome?

He said, he would like to express his gratitude to the Pakistan National Council of the Art for hosting us this evening, as well as Mr. Danish Iqbal, Honorary Consul of Bosnia and Herzegovina in Lahore, Mr. Asad Saleem, Honorary Consul of Bosnia and Herzegovina in Peshawar and Mr. Khawaja Abdul Ghani Majid, Honorary Consul of Bosnia and Herzegovina in Karachi who so generously contributed to the success of tonight′s event.
