“We need to look to the future, so we finally have a stable country,” Ana Brnabic told reporters during a visit to Oslo.

“We need to leave the past behind,” she said.

A U.N. tribunal convicted Mladic of genocide and crimes against humanity for orchestrating massacres and ethnic cleansing during Bosnia’s war and sentenced him to life in prison.
