The Hague international tribunal has outstanding warrants for former Gen. Ratko Mladic and Goran Hadzic, who led a group to create a Serb republic in Croatia.

"It is important that … recommendations are taken seriously and that political will transfers to concrete operations in order to bring these two fugitives to justice," Fule told reporters.
