The 20th commemoration of the Rwanda genocide


An emotional send off at the airport for the families of the victims.

It was an emotional Sunday morning when prime minister Elio Di Rupo and myself gave the families of the victims of the Rwanda genocide a safe send off at the airport.

In 2000, I offered my apologies  on behalf of the Belgian government to the families of the more than 800.000 victims who where brutally murdered in two months time while the international community stood by and watched it happen. It changed my view on politics: there is much more to it than getting the numbers right. There is such a thing as an international community: we have the moral obligation to act.
